09.21.2006 - Toshiba recalls approximately 340,000 laptop batteries with cells manufactured by Sony.

View Alert related news. Toshiba Corp. is recalling 340,000 laptop batteries made by Sony Corp. because of problems with recharging them, the latest in a string of embarrassing defects and production glitches for Sony. The recall affects 100,000 batteries for laptops sold in the United States, 45,000 in Japan, and the remainder in other parts of the world, Toshiba spokesman Keisuke Omori said yesterday, declining to quantify the number of problems reported by customers. The defect is not directly related to the problem behind last month's recall of Sony laptop batteries by Dell Inc. and Apple Computer Inc., which cited concerns the batteries could overheat and catch fire.

Notice: The Toshiba Battery Exchange Program terminated on January 1, 2007.
