In corporation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, business appliance maker Dell Inc. announced the recall of a.c. adapters used with notebook personal computers.

The adapters can overheat, posing a fire risk and electrical shock hazards to users. Dell has received seven reports of incidents of adapters overheating, though no injuries have been reported.

The recalled AC adapters were used with Dell Latitude(TM), Precision(TM), and Inspiron(TM) notebook-style personal computers. The notebook computers have the following model numbers, which can be found either screened onto the surface of the computer or printed on a label on the bottom of the computer:

    The recalled adapters have the words “DELL” and “P/N 9364U,” P/N 7832D,” or “P/N 4983D” printed on the back of the unit. Dell's Web site and customer service center sold the computers with adapters from September 1998 through February 2002 for about U.S. $1,500 to about $3,200.
