The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Lenovo, announced a voluntary recall for Lithium-ion extended-life batteries used in ThinkPad notebook computers. About 100,000 of the said battery packs were sold in the U.S. (an additional 105,000 battery packs were sold worldwide).
 
If the battery in the laptop is struck forcefully on the corner, such as from a direct fall to the ground, the battery pack can overheat and pose a fire hazard to users. This is not an internal battery cell defect.

Lenovo has received four reports of batteries overheating and damaging the notebook. This caused damage to the notebook computers, minor property damage and, in one case, minor eye irritation to one consumer.
   
Lenovo sold these extended-life batteries with new ThinkPad notebook PCs or as optional or replacement batteries for the following ThinkPad notebook models: R Series (R60 and R60e), T Series (T60 and T60p) and Z Series (Z60m, Z61e, Z61m, and Z61p).
