Dell Computers initiated the largest recall of electronic goods in history, possibly influenced partly by this story. Consumer Affairs looked into a report from a woodsman in rural Arizona who said a Dell computer "engulfed his truck." His 1966 Ford F-250 exploded in a fire caused by the laptop, a situation which became even more dangerous thanks to the bullets in the gentleman's glove compartment, sending bystanders diving behind boulders. The man, Thomas Forqueran, provided photos and documents to verify his story. Following the battery recall, Consumer Affiars further reported that Dell may have been aware of the potential problems.
