Fujifilm has announced a recall of AC-5VF power adapter wall plugs packaged with a variety of Fujifilm digital camera models. "While there have been no reported injuries, there is a risk that the wall plug may crack, break or detach and remain in the outlet exposing live electrical contacts and posing a shock hazard," the company said.

The AC adapters for the following models within certain serial numbers are subject to the recall:

  • XP90/XP95 cameras sold from June 2016
  • XP120/XP125 cameras sold from January 2017
  • X-A3 cameras sold from October 2016
  • X-A10 cameras sold from February 2017

In the recall notice the company advised owners to immediately stop using the adapter, charging the camera via a USB cable plugged into a computer.
