Apple has issued a recall for the compact USB power adapter that comes with the 3G iPhone. Apple has determined that under certain conditions the USB power adapter's metal prongs can break off and remain in a power outlet, creating a risk of electric shock. Apple is recommending that users stop using the compact charger immediately and charge their 3G iPhones via their PC instead. The USB power adapter that came with the original iPhone is still safe to use. Apple has also set up a voluntary exchange program, whereby users can return their 3G iPhone USB power adapters for a new, redesigned adapter free of charge. The new adapters won't be available in retail stores until October 10, but can be ordered via the Web before then.
