Lenovo recalls desktops on overheating, fire fears

Lenovo Group Ltd, China’s biggest personal computer maker, announced on Friday that it is recalling more than 50,500 desktop computers sold globally and in China, because of potential hazards of overheating and fire accidents.

Lenovo decided to recall the faulty desktops after two US consumers reported problems of power management which caused smoke and fire during usage, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The models involved include Lenovo’s ThinkCentre M70z and M90z, which were produced from May 2010 to January 2012 and sold overseas and in China, according to Lenovo.
