"More than 500,000 notebook power adapters sold by IBM are being recalled to offset the threat of melting plastic and even fire."

"The adapters were produced by Delta Electronics and sit in systems shipped between January 1999 and August 2000. The main systems affected were the ThinkPad i Series notebooks and ThinkPad 390 and 240 series."
