Apple issues voluntary recall for some international wall adapters due to risk of electrical shock

Apple on Thursday announced a voluntary recall of AC wall plug adapters designed for use in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Continental Europe, New Zealand and South Korea that shipped with Mac and certain iOS devices between 2003 and 2015 and were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.

“In very rare cases, affected Apple two-prong wall plug adapters may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched,” notes the company.

The recall is for some wall adapters that were shipped between the years 2003 and 2015, so it’s quite a spread, and it includes both Macs and iOS-based devices. These wall plugs were also included in the International Travel Adapter Kit.
“Apple® today announced a voluntary recall of AC wall plug adapters designed for use in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Continental Europe, New Zealand and South Korea.

It should be noted as well that this recall does not include any other wall adapters, including ones used in Japan, the United States, Hong Kong, China, Canada, or the United Kingdom.

“Apple is aware of 12 incidents worldwide,” reads a press release.
