Nokia Corp. is recalling some phone chargers that can pose an electric shock hazard for some of its models.
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.
The company said it is u
naware of any incidents or injuries related to the faulty chargers.
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.
Users with a charger that qualifies for a replacement can go to the Nokia web site to enter information and request a new charger.
