Lenovo is expanding the recall of some ThinkCentre all-in-ones due to a component defect that can cause the PCs to overheat and catch fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.
The PC maker is recalling 13,000 more ThinkCentre M90z and M70z models after a fire and smoke incidents were reported in the U.S, the CPSC said. The government agency is asking consumers to immediately stop using the computers.
ThinkCentre desktops are all-in-one PCs with all components integrated inside a monitor. The expanded recall covers desktops that were sold online and through distributors from May 2010 through March this year.
Consumers will qualify for recall based on the manufacturing date code, which can be verified on a label underneath the PC.
