Recall on Apple wall plug adapters
Apple has issued a recall on AC wall plug adapters designed for use in a number of countries, including New Zealand.
The company said in rare cases the adapters may break and possibly cause an electric shock if touched.
Apple knew of 12 incidents worldwide but did not have any information relating to affected adapters in or for New Zealand.
An affected two-prong plug adaptor had either four or five characters or no characters on the inside slot where it attached to the main Apple power adaptor.
Adapters designed for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, continental Europe and South Korea were also affected
The adapters were shipped with Mac and some iOS devices between 2003 and 2015 and were also included in the Apple world travel adaptor kit.
Customers with affected adapters should stop using them and visit the Apple website for details on how to exchange the item for a new, redesigned one.
The recall did 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.
