Lexar JumpDrive Recall

About 66,000 of the JumpDrive FireFly and JumpDrive Secure II drives are being recalled due to possible overheating and burning. There no actual incidents of burning or injury, so this is more of a precautionary measure.

The affected JumpDrive Firefly flash memory drives were sold between April and May this year, for between $30 and $110. The recalled JumpDrive Secure devices were sold only at Fry's Electronics in May, for $80, the company said.

If you've got one, might as well go ahead and return it just in case. You don't want to come home to a fried $2000 laptop due to a faulty $80 thumb drive.
