Apple did not reveal any details of whether anyone was injured by the fault. They were produced and shipped over a seven year period between 2003 and 2010.
A three-pronged plug included in the World Travel Adapter kit is also being recalled. The design is notable for being bulkier than its apparently safer replacement, and by using an all-white casing with no external markings; the safe, thinner, replacement has a grey inner with safety and regulatory information plus dimples to the sides. Apple's USB power adapters are not included in the recall.
The serial number of the device that the plug came with will be needed in order to verify the Mac, iPod, iPhone or iPad that the adaptor came with.
Apple has recalled certain plug adapters in the United Kingdom over fears they could cause an electric shock.
The company said it was aware of twelve incidents where this had happened.
