Lenovo Really Screwed Up This Time By Shipping Laptops With Loose Screws

You can’t make this stuff up.

Lenovo is recalling their top of the line Thinkpad Carbon X1 laptops. The reason? If they were manufactured between December 2016 and October 2017, they may have a screw that wasn’t properly tightened during the assembly process. That loose screw could potentially damage the battery pack’s lithium-ion polymer layer and cause a short. Which in turn can cause a fire, which of course is bad.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has details on the recall here:

The recall only currently covers the US and Canada as far as I can tell. So if you own one of these laptops, click on the links in the Tweet above and get the details on how to get this sorted.

Needless to say, this is one hell of a screw up.
