A consumer alert has been issued Thursday. IBM Corporation is recalling laptop batteries made by Sony because of a fire hazard. IBM and batteries’ distributor, Lenovo Inc, are recalling the lithium-ion batteries used in ThinkPad notebook computers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the batteries could overheat.  In August, Dell and Apple recalled a combined six million batteries for the same concern.  Consumers should stop using the batteries and contact Lenovo to receive a replacement.
