Dell is recalling its Hybrid Power Adapters sold with power banks which pose a shock risk.

The company has issued a recall for versions of the combo manufactured between January 2017 and March 2017 after it was discovered that the hybrid power adapter casing can break and detach, exposing the internal metal components, posing an electric shock hazard.
