    The battery packs, manufactured in China, were sold online at www.shopfujitsu.com from July 2012, through December 2017, for about $170 for the battery pack sold separately, and between $1,100 and $2,900 for the battery packs sold with Fujitsu notebook computers and workstations.

    What to do

    Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled battery packs, power off the laptop, remove the battery and follow instructions to obtain a free replacement battery pack.

    Until a replacement battery pack is received, consumers should use the laptop by plugging in AC power only.
