Fujifilm is recalling more than 270,000 power adapter wall plugs that were packaged with six of the company’s point-and-shoot and mirrorless camera models, due to a risk of electrical shock, according to Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Fujifilm says the AC-5VF plugs may crack, break, or accidentally detach from the device’s charger, posing a hazard, but there are currently no reported injuries. The company will provide a replacement wall plug and adapter unit free of charge.

The recall affects only the wall charging unit. Consumers can continue to use the camera, recharging it by attaching the included USB cable to a computer. Camera owners should run Fujifilm's search tool to determine whether their camera's plug has been recalled.

The Details

Recalled item: Wall plugs included with XP90 and XP95 cameras sold since June 2016; XP120 and XP125 cameras sold since January 2017; X-A3 cameras sold since October 2016; and X-A10 cameras sold since February 2017.

About 270,000 cameras with the recalled wall plugs were sold at national retailers including Best Buy and Amazon between June 2016 and January 2018. An additional 24,000 units were sold in Canada.

The problem: 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 fix: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled power adapter wall plugs and contact Fujifilm for a free replacement. Fujifilm says consumers will need to provide a customer service representative with a name, address, telephone number, and the model name and serial number of the camera.

How to contact the manufacturer: Fujifilm says owners can reach customer service at productsafety@fujifilm.com or at 833-613-1200 (toll-free).
