~ Panasonic joins notebook battery recall ~

Third company announces battery recall, but its recall program is much smaller than those for Dell and Apple.

CNET News.com
September 5, 2006

It's been a high-profile summer for lithium ion notebook batteries, much to the chagrin of Dell, Apple Computer and Sony.

Matsushita, better-known by its Panasonic brand name, joined the party this week with its own recall of 6,000 notebook batteries sold in Japan. This most recent recall isn't nearly as large as the ones that involved 4.1 million batteries sold by Dell and 1.8 million batteries sold by Apple, but it's another example of the care and attention being paid to notebook batteries these days.
