Apple has announced a voluntary recall of its AC wall plug adapters due to the risk of possible electrical shock if touched.

In a release, Apple said that in very rare cases the affected adapters may break and create the electrical shock.

The adapters that are affected by the recall were shipped with Mac and certain iOS devices between 2003 and 2010. They were also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit. The recalled adapters have three prongs, are white, and do not have letters on the inside slot where the adapter attaches to the main Apple power adapter.

Apple says the recall does not affect any Apple USB power adapters.

The adapters are primarily used in Hong Kong, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

Apple is now asking its customers to stop using the affected adapters immediately. The company is offering an exchange program through its website, which affected customers can get a new adapter for free.
