Fujitsu joins the Sony battery recall list

Just after our last Sony battery recall article went live a just a short while ago, another recall came through the news wires. It looks as though Fujitsu is stepping up the plate and is recalling 287,000 Sony-manufactured batteries.

Fujitsu is still working on the details for the recall so that customers are made aware of who to contact and where to send their defective batteries to. BusinessWeek reports:

Affected are 224,000 laptops sold overseas across 10 models, including the popular Lifebook series, according to Fujitsu spokesman Masao Sakamoto. The remaining 63,000 were sold across 17 models in Japan.

The "Total Recall" has now topped the 7.5 million mark and will only grow after Sony launches its Global Replacement Program. Sony estimates that its total cost for the recalls will be between $170 to $254 million USD (not counting this latest recall from Fujitsu).


Updated 10/4/2006: Fujitsu has posted on its website the models affected by the recall.
