Dell Battery Recall Update

On August 14, 2006, Dell announced a recall of batteries manufactured with Sony cells. As part of the recall process, Dell continues to require its suppliers to revalidate the data which led to the recall. This has resulted in a revised list of battery serial (identification) numbers.

To ensure that all potentially affected batteries are identified and returned to Dell, the company is requesting that customers recheck their batteries at www.dellbatteryprogram.com if they have not yet ordered or received a replacement battery. Throughout this recall, Dell's primary concern continues to be the safety of its customers. [Announced September 29, 2006].
