Default Packard Bell Recalls Lithium-Ion Batteries

Problems with li-ion batteries are still not going away. Packard Bell, a well-known maker of personal computers, on Wednesday announced that it would recall batteries contained in certain notebooks made in 2007 since those computers can catch fire because of their lithium-ion accumulators.

Packard Bell recalls batteries with potentially defective battery cells contained in certain Packard Bell EasyNote MX36, MX37, MX51 and MX52 notebook computers. The recall only affects units manufactured between July and December 2007. The affected units were mainly sold in Europe. No affected units were sold in the United States.
