Recall: Lenovo calls back two ThinkCentre models on fire risk

After two fires, Lenovo recalls 160,000 ThinkCentre M90z and M70z all-in-one desktops worldwide.

Lenovo has issued a recall of the ThinkCentre M90z.

You can read Lenovo's recall information page for all the details of the recall. A tool on the page lets you plug in your machine code and serial number to find out if you have an affected unit. The M90z is a different unit than the M91z we reviewed in October 2011.

Lenovo markets the ThinkCentre line to business customers, although it is available for anyone to purchase. Lenovo says it sold the at-risk systems between May 2010 and January 2012.

If you are at risk for a flaming all-in-one, Lenovo advises you to immediately unplug your desktop. Once you submit that you have an affected unit, Lenovo says it will ship out a replacement power supply for free.
