Lenovo Recall

February 7, 2018

TROY Community:

Lenovo is voluntarily recalling ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation laptops manufactured between December 2016 and October 2017. Lenovo has determined that a limited number of such laptops may have an unfastened screw that could damage the laptop’s battery causing overheating, potentially posing a fire hazard.

IT is awaiting a purchasing report from our vendor for units purchased by the university.  If your department purchased a Lenovo X1 Carbon and it is affected by the recall, IT will reach out and schedule an inspection with you.
