Sony in emergency product recall

Electronics giant, Sony, says it is recalling 438 thousand Vaio laptop computers worldwide due to faulty parts that could trigger overheating and constitute a serious fire hazard.

Sony says the recall involves 19 models of Vaio TZ laptop series manufactured between May 2007 and July 2008, including 3 export models.

The Tokyo-based consumer electronics corporation said in a statement Thursday that faulty wiring connecting the main body of the laptop and its display screen could cause overheating near a power plug or the rim of the screen, sometimes distorting the shape of the computer.

Sony shares fell more than 2% in the US as a result of the announcement
