The batteries were manufactured by Sony, and the move follows the recall of six million Sony laptop batteries by Dell and Apple, and a further 350,000 by Toshiba due to potential fire hazard.
The Lenovo/IBM recall coincided with an announcement by Sony of a general recall of all potentially affected batteries supplied to all laptop makers.
