Perhaps the case you cited was something along the lines of
the capacitor debacle of a few years back?  The chemistry of all of
these batteries should be very similar but that doesn't mean that
some shady manufacturer isn't using crap chemicals or metals
to produce batteries that are not reliable. Cardboard electrodes maybe?
