Apple to recall iPhone chargers

IPhone 3G owners could be at risk of electric shock from faulty power adapters, Apple has warned.

The metal prongs on many of the ultra-compact USB adapters sold with the 3G iPhone model could break off, putting owners at risk.

Apple has urged owners to swap the adapters that came with the phone to minimise risk. No-one has been injured by the faulty adapters as yet.

At risk are iPhone owners in the US, Japan, Canada and Mexico.

Apple said iPhone 3G adapters sold in a further 10 Latin American nations were also faulty.
