Lenovo has issued a worldwide recall for some models of its ThinkCentre all-in-one PCs due to a fire hazard posed by a faulty power supply.
It is urging customers to immediately unplug the power cord and stop using M70z and M90z models sold between May 1, 2010 and January 30, 2012.
The PC maker is recalling 160,000 of the affected PCs globally.
The Australian Compeition and Consumer Commission has released a product safety notice for Australian M90z customers, citing danger of possible overheating and smoke due to some defective metalized capacitors inside the power supplies.
The M70z is not available locally.
Affected users can contact Lenovo’s Support Centre on 131426 for a free replacement power supply.
The PC maker said in a statement that it "apologises for the inconvenience caused by these issues".
