Apple recalls power adapters over electric shock risks

Apple has issued a voluntary recall of Australian AC two-prong wall adapters for Mac and iOS devices from between 2003 and 2015. This includes adapters in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit. Apple has reported that there have been 12 incidents globally of the adapters breaking, and causing risk of electric shock.

The affected adapters are also used in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Continental Europe, New Zealand and South Korea.

The recall does not affect any other Apple AC wall plug adapters designed for Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, United Kingdom, United States or any Apple USB power adapters.

An affected two-prong plug adapter has either four or five characters or no characters on the inside slot where it attaches to the main Apple power adapter. Apple advises to stop using these adapters immediately. Visit the website for information on how to identify and exchange affected adapters for the new, redesigned version.
