If you bought a Fujifilm camera within the past two years or so, it seems that you might want to be careful when using the power adapter. This is because Fujifilm has announced that they will be recalling about 270,000 camera power adapters due to the potential of a “shock hazard”, which clearly does not sound like fun.

In a post on the CPSC website (the government agency that handles recalls), it reads, “The power adapter wall plug can crack, break or detach and remain in the wall and expose live electrical contacts, posing a shock hazard.” The good news is that it seems that none of Fujifilm’s more recent and higher-end cameras aren’t affected by this.

The affected cameras include the XP90, XP95, XP120, XP125, X-A3 and X-A10, which means that if you or someone you know owns any of these cameras, you might want to tell them that they’ll have to send their power adapters back in. For those who do own any of these cameras, you can head on over to Fujifilm’s website where you’ll be able to check your serial number to see if it matches the units that have to be recalled.

Thankfully the CPSC claims that there are no reported injuries, but we probably wouldn’t wait too long to send in your faulty power adapter.
