Apple Recalls New MacBook Charger

When the new MacBook launched, it was charged via a USB-C cable. These cables are being recalled, at least, cables from before June 2015. Although, Apple doesn't say that there are any safety risks, Apple does say that your MacBook may not charge properly with these cables. You can tell whether your cable is affected by checking the text on the cable. Affected cables only say "Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China." There is no serial number. Fixed cables have the same text, but with a serial number. If you provided a mailing address when you bought your MacBook (by registering the product or through the Apple Online Store), then no action is required and a new cable will be sent to you. Otherwise, either go to an Apple Retail Store or contact Apple Support.
