Sony Recalls 1700 Battery Packs

Sony is recalling about 1700 Panasonic lithium-ion battery packs installed in Vaio laptops, due to overheating that may cause a fire.

According to a notice published by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, no related incidents or injuries have so far been reported.

In early 2014, Sony said it would discontinue the sale of PC products, and the company sold its Vaio business to private-equity firm Japan Industrial Partners. At the time, Sony said it would continue providing customer service to its existing Vaio customers.

The battery packs subject to the recall have model number VGP-BPS26 and part numbers 1-853-237-11 and 1-853-237-21, and were included in computers sold in 2013.
