Kyocera yesterday issued a precautionary recall of certain batteries for its Slider, K400, and 3200 series phones. The batteries shipped with the phones, and certain aftermarket batteries bearing the Kyocera logo, may contain components not approved by Kyocera, fraudulently used by the battery supplier. There is no specific danger; Kyocera is issuing the proactive, voluntary recall as a precautionary measure. Kyocera is also working with the FBI to pursue legal remedies against the counterfeit battery supplier.

The second one from Kyocera

They just had one for the 7135 just a couple months ago, I wonder what is going on with these Kyocera phone batteris. I find it Ironic that they are the ones that are for verizon as well.
Actually My friend was informed of this recall becasue he owns the Kyocera slider. Apparently the unapproved materials can potentially cause the phone to spontaneously combust. This is not confirmed.

This is so old

We got a memo about this last month, we had to check all our phones and return the ones that fell within a certain ESN range.
