BOSTON (Reuters) - Dell Inc. said on Friday that it is recalling batteries installed in some laptop computers it sold in the United States over the past year, citing an overheating problem with potential to pose a fire risk.
Consumers can contact Dell at (866)-342-0011 or www.dellbatteryprogram.com to see if their laptops are among those affected by the recall.
No injuries have been reported, though Dell said it has learned of three incidents that caused damage to the furniture and personal effects of its customers.
The batteries were installed in some 22,000 laptops that Dell sold from October 2004 to October 2005.
The company shipped more than 5.6 million computers in the United States during the third quarter of this year, according to an estimate from market research firm IDC
