Dell Recalls Notebook Batteries

Dell Computer Corp. last Friday began a voluntary recall of nearly 27,000 batteries used in a variety of Dell notebook computers. Officials at the computer maker said the batteries have the potential to short-circuit and heat to the point of combustion. So far, only one incident of a faulty battery bursting into flames has been reported, but Dell is taking no chances. Dell is contacting customers who purchased systems with the bad batteries this year between June 22 and Oct. 4.
