Apple recalling some AC wall plug adapters and Apple World Travel Adapter Kits
Apple has launched a voluntary recall of some AC wall plug adapters shipped between 2003 and 2010, designed for use primarily in Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
In Apple's statement surrounding the recall, it says that affected Apple three-prong wall plug adapters may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched. These wall plug adapters shipped with Mac and certain iOS devices between 2003 and 2010 and were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.
An affected three-prong plug adapter is white, with no letters on the inside slot where it attaches to the main Apple power adapter. Apple notes that customers who believe that they have the adapters, the newest of which is nine years old at this point, should visit the support page for the recall.
The recall is as a result of six incidents worldwide. Apple notes that the recall does not affect any Apple adapters for US power, nor are any USB power adapters impacted.
