The recall affects plugs designed for use in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Mainland Europe, New Zealand and South Korea

Apple is recalling AC wall plug adapters sold Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Mainland Europe, New Zealand and South Korea due to the risk of electrical shock.

The manufacturer said its two-prong wall adapters may break and create the risk of electrical shock if touched. Apple confirmed there have been 12 incidents worldwide. The wall plugs concerned were shipped with certain Mac and iOS devices between 2003 and 2015.

Customers can identify affected adapters by finding four or five randomised numbers (pictured below) within the charger. Apple will need the serial number of Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod products with affected chargers. Adapters can be exchanged at a local Apple Store, online or via Apple Support.
