Lenovo Statement on ThinkPad X1 Carbon Recall

The recall covers ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation laptops built between December 2016 and October 2017. According to the CPSC, an "unfastened screw" may cause battery damage that results in it overheating, which could then trigger a fire. The PC maker advises ThinkPad Carbon X1 owners to visit a special website and check out whether their machines are recalled.

Lenovo advises customers who have an affected laptop to stop using it immediately and contact the manufacturer.

Chinese multinational technology company Lenovo has issued a statement warning users that certain elements of their devices may be faulty.

More than 80,000 Lenovo laptops are being recalled because they pose a potential fire hazard. An unfastened screw left in the laptops during their manufacturing can damage one of the lithium batteries and cause one of the cells to short out. The recall could affect as much as 83,500 devices. If it's between 12/2016 and 10/2017 and you have a corresponding model number, you've officially got a problem laptop. The commission has noted that around 78,000 laptops have been affected by the recall in the USA and an additional 5,500 in Canada. The damage can also lead to fire and requires immediate fix. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is already available in select markets at a starting price of $1,709.

"Lenovo values you as a customer and regrets any inconvenience this recall may cause", the company said. There have not yet been any incidents in the United States, where 78,000 units could be affected (alongside another 5,500 in Canada).
