Multinational computer technology company Lenovo is recalling about 148,000 ThinkPad notebook battery packs after receiving reports of overheating, which may pose a risk of fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on April 21.

The agency released a detailed list of ThinkPad notebook computers sold with the defective Lenovo battery packs, as well as the battery pack part numbers. The company has already received four reports of overheating that led to property damage. One of the reports included a consumer whose skin reddened due to the issue.

Consumers are asked not to use the affected battery packs and to contact the company for a free product replacement.
