Apple has announced a voluntary recall of AC wall plug adapters designed for use primarily in Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
The Cupertino firm says that in very rare cases, affected Apple three-prong wall plug adapters may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched. The wall plug adapters shipped with Macs and certain iOS devices between 2003 and 2010. The adapters were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.
Apple says it is aware of six incidents worldwide. The recall does not affect any Apple USB power adapters.
Apple is asking customers to immediately stop using affected plug adapters. Customers should visit apple.com/support/three-prong-ac-wall-plug-adapter for details about how to exchange them for new adapters.
The affected three-prong plug adapter is white, with no letters on the inside slot where it attaches to the main Apple power adapter. See the website linked above for more details and images to identify an affected adapter.
