Apple recalls 3G iPhone chargers in USA - but UK is OK

Apple is recalling its Ultracompact USB Power Adapter from the USA, Canada, Japan, Mexico and a number of Latin American countries. The UK, however, is not affected. Apple says the metal prongs from the adaptor can break off and remain in a power outlet, creating a risk of electric shock. The power adapters were supplied with every iPhone 3G sold in the affected countries. Apple is exchanging every ultracompact power adapter for a new redesigned adapter, free of charge. Replacement adapters will be available from 10th October. [Press release]
