Electronics company Siemens has issued a statement to its customers warning them of fake phone batteries which could explode.

The company has said that fake mobile phone batteries that have been imported to the European market from Asia pose a potential health risk. A case has been reported of a couple that suffered slight burns and injuries to their eyes when their C-25 mobile phone exploded while it was in a recharging station in their car.

Siemens recommends that all owners of Siemens handsets should check their batteries and replace any fakes immediately.
