Fujifilm North America is recalling nearly three hundred thousand wall plugs sold
with cameras due to shock concern. So far no one has been harmed by one of the adapters, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on January 16th. 

The recall involves AC-5VF power adapter wall plugs made in China, sold with Fujifilm digital camera models XP90, XP95, XP120, XP125, X-A3 and X-A10. 

Even though those cameras come in a variety of colors the power adapter is black and has a model number "AC-5VF" printed on the back of it. 

If you don't recall the model number of your camera, the serial number for each camera is printed on the bottom of the camera or under the battery compartment lid.

This is not something that should be overlooked. Recalls happen for a reason, remember no large corporation is going to willingly spend millions of dollars recalling and replacing a product unless there's something seriously wrong with it... mostly for fear of being sued, but regardless, they're important. 

The cameras mentioned in the recall the XP90 and XP95 were sold from June 2016 through January 2018, while the XP120 and XP125 were sold from January 2017 through January 2018, and the X-A3 was sold from October 2016 through January 2018, and the X-A10 was sold from February 2017 through January 2018. 

Anyone who has a recalled power adapter or purchased a wall plug should stop using it immediately and contact Fujifilm for a free replacement. 

Note, it's still safe to charge the cameras using a USB cable at this time, so, if you're going on a trip you can still use the camera. 

If you still need more information, you can call Fuji toll-free at 833-613-1200 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email productsafety@fujifilm.com or go to www.fujifilmusa.com and click on "Support & Contact."
