CBC News

Sony has ordered the recall of two models of the VAIO laptop computer because of an overheating problem that could cause burns to the user.

The Canadian recall involves nearly 14,000 F11 and CW2 series computers sold between January and June 2010.

In the United States Sony recalled 233,000 of the laptops last week after receiving 30 reports of the computers overheating and causing damage to keyboards and casings. There were no reports of injuries.

No similar incidents have been reported in Canada.
