Sony Corp. said Wednesday it is recalling about 535,000 Vaio laptops world-wide due to a temperature-control defect that may cause excessive heat and distort the shape of the laptop.
There is also the possibility that overheated laptops could cause skin burns, even though no such cases have been reported thus far, the Japanese electronics and entertainment giant said.
The recall concerns some of the company’s F and C-Series Vaio laptops sold since January 2010. Sony added that the recall applies to 259,000 laptops in the U.S., 103,000 in Europe, 120,000 in Asia and 52,000 in Japan.
