Nokia has issued a press release that informs those who bought a Nokia device/charger between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009 may need to exchange it for a new one.
Nokia states “We have determined that the plastic covers of the affected chargers could come loose and separate, exposing the charger’s internal components and potentially posing an electric shock hazard if certain internal components are touched while the charger is plugged into a live socket.”
“The affected chargers are those manufactured by BYD between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009 and with the following model types AC -3U, AC-3E and those manufactured by BYD between April 13, 2009 and October 25, 2009 and with the following model type AC-4U”
In addition, Nokia states “While we are not aware of any incidents or injuries related to the affected chargers, as a precautionary measure, we will exchange affected charger models free-of-charge.”
