The latest announcement brings the tally of recalled batteries to about 7 million worldwide.

The recall involves Dynabook, Qosmio, Satellite Portege and Tecra models, but regional breakdowns and dates of manufacturing weren’t immediately available, said Toshiba spokesman Keisuke Omori.

Fujitsu, another major Japanese company, also will be making a decision soon about its laptops using Sony lithium-ion batteries, said spokesman Masao Sakamoto.
