Apple Ultracompact USB Power Adapter Exchange Program

You know those adorable little USB power adapters that Apple ships with the iPhone 3G? Well, they’re being recalled:

We have received reports of detached blades involving a very small percentage of the adapters sold, but no injuries have been reported.
