By Jack Phillips

Lenovo recalled about 80,000 laptops due to a potential fire hazard.

Lenovo is voluntarily recalling some ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation laptops, the company said in a statement this week.

“Lenovo has determined that a limited number of such laptops may have an unfastened screw that could damage the laptop’s battery causing overheating, potentially posing a fire hazard,” according to a release from the company.

Officials said around 78,000 ThinkPad X1 Carbon Laptops were included in the recall across the United States, Fox reported. About 5,500 are being recalled in Canada.

Lenovo also said it’s offering a free service inspection program for all affected laptops.

The CPSC said that, so far, no incidents of overheating or fires have been reported in the U.S., Fox reported.

The laptops were sold at Lenovo.com, CDW, Insight, Connection, Zones, as well as other retailers from December 2016 to November 2017. They retailed from $1,100 to $2,600.
