Sony Recalls Laptops Across China

Japanese electronics giant Sony Corporation is recalling 55,362 VPCF11 series and VPCCW2 series laptop computers under its Vaio brand in mainland China due to overheating problems, the country's quality watchdog said last week.

The affected laptops were produced between December 2009 and February 2010, while sales of these laptops kicked off in January 2010, according to the State Administration of Quality Supervision and Inspection and Quarantine.

Sony said it will fix those computers that can overheat caused by a temperature-control defect, posing a burn hazard to the user and distorting the laptop's shape.

The recall is also taking place in the U.S., Europe and other countries in Asia including Japan.
