Dell Issues Sweeping Laptop Battery Recall Notice

Dell LaptopIt looks like Dell is doing one of the most massive recalls in consumer electronics history, issuing a voluntary recall in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission of some 2.7 million notebook battery packs (an additional 1.4 million battery packs were sold outside the U.S.) sold in conjunction with select Latitude, Inspiron, Dell Precision and XPS notebooks sold between April 2004 and July 2006.
