SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Apple is recalling its adapters primarily used in Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom
The Cupertino-based company is recalling its "three-prong wall plug" adapters sold between January 2003 and 2015.
The adapters came with Mac and certain iOS products, and are included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit. Apple received six reports from other countries of wall plug adapters breaking, and customers receiving shocks.
But none of them happened in the United States.
Customers should stop using the adapters, and contact Apple for a free replacement.
Here are links to Apple and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission with more information.
