On 29 January 2016, Apple announced a voluntary recall of AC wall plug adapters designed for use in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Continental Europe, New Zealand and South Korea.
In very rare cases, affected Apple two-prong wall plug adapters may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched. These wall plug adapters shipped with Mac and certain iOS devices between 2003 and 2015 and were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.
Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and they have voluntarily decided to exchange affected wall plug adapters with a new, redesigned adapter, free of charge.
