Following reports of overheating, Dell has issued a recall of batteries used in its Latitude, Precision and Inspiron notebook computers that were shipped between October 04 and October 05 of this year. (Date accuracy courtesy of dsenette)

The recall includes 22,000 batteries shipped in the U.S. and another 13,000 distributed overseas.

Although it has heard of no injuries, Dell says the batteries, which were manufactured in China or Japan, could "pose a risk of fire." The company has setup a Web site for customers to find out if they are affected, and is providing a replacement order form and return information. "Batteries subject to recall should not be used while awaiting a replacement battery pack from Dell, it says."
