In a press statement, Lenovo, in association with and in compliance with the rules and guidelines of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced the voluntary recall of certain Lenovo ThinkCentre M70z and M90z desktop computers that were available from May 2010 through January 2012. A defect in an internal component in the power supply of these computers is susceptible to overheat and could potentially result in a fire hazard. Owners will have to check the date codes on their computers to make sure they are not affected by this recall. The affected date codes are 1001 to 1012, 1101 to 1112, 001 to 012, and 101 to 112. The date code can be seen on a label on the bottom of the computers. Consumers that are affected by this recall are being asked to contact the company to set up an appointment to receive a free replacement of the defective power supply.
As a Lancaster personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen this sort of precautionary safety recall many times before and I understand the devastating injuries that are possible through the use of any defective product. Manufacturers have many safety measures in place to ensure the quality of their products, however mistakes are possible even through the most meticulous of quality assurance processes’. If you’ve suffered an injury through the normal use of a defective product, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area to discuss your rights as a consumer and the possible legal options that may be at your disposal.Tweet
