Citing a risk of electrical shock, Apple has issued a voluntary recall on AC wall plug adapters designed for use in Continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Argentina and Brazil. Apple said today that the adapters may break and create a risk of electrical shock.

According to Apple, the adapters in question were shipped from 2003 to 2015 with Mac and certain iOS devices, and were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.

If you suspect you may have bought one of these adapters, you can follow the instructions at Apple’s website to confirm whether yours is one of the affected models and also find out how to exchange it for a new and safer one.
