Apple iPhone 3G Power Adapter Recalled

Apple has issued a recall for the Ultracompact USB Adapter that coming with the new Apple iPhone 3G for charging. It seems that the power Adapter’s design is somewhat faulty and the prongs that plug into a wall receptacle can break off and stay in the wall. This causes a risk of shock.

Apple has determined that under certain conditions the new ultracompact Apple USB power adapter’s metal prongs can break off and remain in a power outlet, creating a risk of electric shock. We have received reports of detached blades involving a very small percentage of the adapters sold, but no injuries have been reported.
