Fujifilm Recalls Power Adapter Wall Plugs Sold with Digital Cameras Due to Shock Haza

The cameras involved are the lower-end P/S Fujis from the past couple of years, but some of you might have some as family vacation cameras, so I wanted to pass along the recall.

On a separate note, check out how many/few of these cameras were sold by Fuji in the past few years.
