Toshiba is recalling 340,000 Sony made batteries for their Dynabook and Satellite notebooks.

The good thing is that these batteries are not exploding, they just could stop working.
It only affects Toshiba Dynabook and Satellite notebooks made between March and May of 2006.
I could not find any how-to guide yet on a Toshiba site that explains how affected customers can go about the recall. Dell and Apple had apparently better preparation. This notebook battery disaster will cost Sony quite some money. Apple and Dell already had their huge battery recalls.
More details in this Reuters story.
