    The US consumer safety commission and Sony have confirmed that nearly 70,000 VAIO AC adapters are being recalled due to their respective shock hazards.

    <blockquote>The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Sony have released a statement indicating around 69,000 Vaio AC adapters are now being recalled due to a possible shock hazard.

    To date, there have been four reports of short circuiting AC adapters that could lead to an "electrical shock hazard to consumers." Each affected adapter can be returned to Sony in exchange for a new one, the company said in a statement.</blockquote>
