Microsoft is going to be issuing a voluntary recall later this week for some of the AC power chargers that were included in some Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 3 tablets. The recall is due to a possible fire hazard for those cords.
Channelnomics Europe reports that the recall will affect all Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 3 tablets in Europe sold before July 15, 2015. It says Microsoft will officially announce the recall plans on Friday, January 22:
ZDNet received a statement from a Microsoft spokesperson who said:
The spokesperson added the recall will be for those tablets that were sold in the US before March 2015. The recall will not affect owners of the non-Pro Surface tablets, nor the more recently-released Surface Pro 4 model.
