Affected machines pose fire hazard

Lenovo and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission have announced a voluntary recall of about 50,500 Lenovo all-in-one computers. The machines being recalled include the ThinkCentre M70z and M90z all-in-one machines. The recall states that consumers who own the computers need to stop using them immediately and notes that is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled product.
The reason the computers are being recalled is a defect in an internal component that is inside the power supply that poses an overheat risk. If the component overheats, there is a risk of fire. The power supply of these machines is inside the PC housing and the recall covers specific date codes. That date code can be found a label on the bottom of the machine. Recall date codes include 001-012, 101-112, 1001-1012, and 1101-1112.
Lenovo issued a statement that read, "In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Lenovo is voluntarily recalling 160,000 ThinkCentre M70z and ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one (AIO) desktop PCs worldwide sold between May 2010 and January 2012. Lenovo has determined that due to a failure of the power supply in the affected all-in-one PCs, the system can overheat posing a fire hazard. Lenovo has received two customer reports worldwide of fire that resulted in damage to the PC. "
Not all of the M70z and M90z AIO computers are affected so you need to be sure you check the date code. The computers were sold via the Lenovo website, via telephone, and by direct sale will s from authorized distributors from May of 2010 to January 2012.
Pricing on computers range from $500 up to about $800 and all the machines were manufactured in Mexico. Lenovo is apparently scheduling appointments for a free replacement power supply for those users that own affected machines.
Lenovo has a page on its support website where you can enter your serial number and determine if your computer is affected.
