Additional Nikon Recall on EN-EL3 Batteries

December 6th, 2005 Melville NY On November 8, 2005, Nikon Inc. announced a voluntary recall and replacement program for certain Rechargeable Li-ion Batteries EN-EL3. (For complete information see this updated notice) However, it has become clear that some applicable lot numbers that were not distributed in the U.S. market were omitted from that announcement. We take this opportunity to add omitted lot numbers to the list of recalled EN-EL3 batteries. The lot numbers added at this time apply only to EN-EL3 batteries supplied with purchase of the Nikon D50 digital-SLR camera and distributed in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Argentina. If you are in possession of one of these batteries now listed in the Recall Lot Number Chart below and you are in the United States please follow the return and replacement instruction posted on this web site. Please accept our apologies for this omission.

Additional Lot Numbers Added 12/06/2005:
