Nokia Recalls 14 Million AC Adapters

Not open for further replies.


Anyone who bought a Nokia cell phone recently listen up: Nokia has just launched a recall program for certain Nokia-branded AC adapters.

"During a routine quality control process, Nokia identified a potential product quality issue with certain chargers manufactured by one of its third-party suppliers," Nokia said in a statement. "The plastic covers of the affected chargers could come loose and separate, exposing the charger's internal components and potentially posing an electrical shock hazard if certain internal components are touched while the charger is plugged into a live socket."

No incidents or injuries have been reported, Nokia said.

Affected chargers include the AC-3E and AC-3U models, manufactured between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009; and the AC-4U model, manufactured between April 13, 2009 and October 25, 2009.
