Japan Orders Sony, Dell to Probe Exploding Batteries

Japan's trade ministry on Thursday ordered Sony Corp. (SNE) and Dell Inc. (DELL) to investigate the trouble involving Sony batteries that caused Dell to recall 4.1 laptop computers last week because they were at risk of catching fire.

The ministry said Sony and Dell must report on their findings and say how they will prevent future problems by the end of August, or face a fine under Japan's consumer safety laws.

The story is too old to be commented.
