Microsoft Recalls AC Power Cords
The recall involves AC power cords sold with the Microsoft Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 3 computers before March 15, 2015. The recall also involves accessory power supply units that include an AC power cord sold separately before that same date.
Microsoft received 56 reports of AC cords overheating and emitting flames, and five reports of electrical shock to customers.
The CPSC advised all customers to immediately unplug and stop using the cords, and contact Microsoft for a free replacement cord.
