Apple today announced it has initiated a three-prong AC wall plug adapter recall program.


Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the Apple three-prong AC wall plug adapters designed primarily for use in the United Kingdom, Singapore, and Hong Kong may break and create a risk of electrical shock if exposed metal parts are touched. This wall plug adapter shipped from 2003 to 2010 with Mac and certain iOS devices, and was also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.

Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to exchange affected wall plug adapters with a new adapter, free of charge.

Apple USB power adapters are not affected by this program.

More details to follow…
