January 21, 2018
Fujifilm is recalling about 270,000 power adapter wall plugs sold with Fujifilm digital cameras in the United States and about 24,000 in Canada.
The wall plugs can crack, break, or detach and remain in the wall and expose live electrical contacts, posing a shock hazard. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves AC-5VF power adapter wall plugs sold with Fujifilm digital camera models XP90, XP95, XP120, XP125, X-A3, and X-A10. The digital cameras were sold in a variety of colors.
The recalled wall plugs are black and are combined with a power adapter and USB cord that plugs into the adapter. Model number “AC-5VF” is printed on the back of the power adapter. The serial number is printed on the bottom of the camera or under the battery compartment lid. To check your serial number, visit http://fujifilmusa.com/support/recall/index.html.
