Panasonic has initiated a recall of 6,000 laptop batteries over fears that they may overheat, according to media reports.
Matsushita spokesman Akira Kadota told the agency that the batteries in question are used in the company's Let's Note CF-W4G model.
Problems with the CF-W4G manufactured in April and May 2005 were reported earlier in the year.
According to Kadota, the battery cover can come loose which could cause the cells to heat up and change shape if the cover is damaged.
The recall is significantly smaller than those involving faulty battery units supplied by Sony last month.
Sony estimated that the recalls will cost up to $265m. The company claimed that it has changed its battery manufacturing processes to address the issue and improve safety.
