Toshiba To Recall Notebook Batteries

Japanese electronics maker plans to recall 340,000 notebook computer batteries, some manufactured by Sony Corp.

Japanese electronics maker Toshiba Corp. plans to recall 340,000 notebook computer batteries, Dow Jones Newswires reported Tuesday. At least some of the batteries were manufactured by Sony Corp., the report said.

The move follows last month's battery recalls by Dell Inc. and Apple Computer Inc., which cited concerns that the batteries could overheat and catch fire. Dell asked customers to return 4.1 million faulty laptop batteries, while Apple recalled 1.8 million batteries worldwide.

In both those cases, the problematic lithium-ion batteries were made by Sony Energy Devices Corp., a Japan-based subsidiary of Sony Corp.
