U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Lenovo ThinkCentre M70z and M90z computers

Units: About 13,000 (50,500 were previously recalled in March 2012)

Manufacturer/Importer: Lenovo, of Morrisville, N.C.

Hazard: A defect in an internal component in the power supply can overheat and pose a fire hazard.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm received reports of one fire incident and one smoke incident in the U.S. No injuries have been reported.

Description: The recalled all-in-one desktop computers, or PCs, are flat-panel monitors with the PC integrated into the monitor housing itself. The power supplies are also inside the monitor or PC housing. The computer chassis has a matte black finish with the brand name "ThinkCentre" in the lower left hand corner of the monitor front. The recalled desktop model numbers, M90z and M70z, along with the serial number and manufacturing date code can be found on a label on the underside of the unit.

Models: M70z and M90z
Date Codes; 1001 to 1012, 1101 to 1112, 1201 to 1203, 001 to 012, 101 to 112, 201 to 203

Consumers will need to check the serial number on their computer with Lenovo to determine if it is subject to this recall.

Sold at: Online at Lenovo's websites, by telephone and direct sales through Lenovo authorized distributors nationwide from May 2010 through March 2012 for about $500 for the M70z model and $800 for the M90z model.

Manufactured in: Mexico

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the computers, unplug the power supply and contact the firm to determine if your computer is included in the recall and to schedule an appointment for a free replacement of the power supply. Because additional systems and manufacturing dates have been added to the recall, even those customers who contacted Lenovo regarding the March 2012 recall should contact Lenovo again to verify if their system is part of this expanded program.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Lenovo toll-free at (855) 248-2194 anytime, or visit the firm's website at www.lenovo.com/aiopsurecall
