Apple has announced the company is recalling AC wall power adapters for Macs and select iOS devices in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Europe, New Zealand and South Korea. It's reported that there's a small risk the two-prong adapters may break apart, leading to a potential electric shock for the owner. Affected adapters were shipped with Macs and certain iOS hardware between 2003 to 2015, and were also bundled in the World Travel Adapter Kit, making it quite the recall.

Apple states in the official announcement that so far a total of 12 incidents have been reported. It's urged that all customers who own said affected adapters cease using them immediately and visit the Apple website for details on how to exchange them for new, redesigned models.

From the recall announcement:

"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. Visit the program website for more details on how to identify an affected adapter."

It's worth noting that AC adapters designed for Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and U.S. are not affected, nor are any USB power adapters.
