Lenovo is recalling tens of thousands of its ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop for potential fire hazards, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Lenovo has announced a voluntary recall of four models of its ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation notebooks.

Said loose screw could potentially damage the battery pack's lithium-ion polymer layer and cause a short. Lenovo has also noted that users being effected by the issue should stop using the device immediately and need to visit the nearest authorized fix center for inspection. Lenovo said that there have been no incidents of property damage (except to the three aforementioned notebooks) or injury so far.

Only ThinkPad laptops with a "machine type" code of 20HQ, 20HR, 20K3, or 20K4 are affected.

If you own a Lenovo laptop, visit this website to see if your laptop is included. Lenovo will provide customers free-of-charge service inspections for all recalled notebooks.
