Toshiba laptop AC adapters

Dynabook Americas has recalled 15.5 million Toshiba laptop AC adapters.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the adapters can overheat and spark posing burn and fire hazards to users. The recalled adapters have date codes between April 2008 through December 2012.

The adapters were sold with Toshiba laptops and were also sold separately at various stores nationwide and at

Users are urged to stop using the adapters immediately and contact Dynabook Americas for a free replacement. However, consumers need to a submit a photo of their AC adapter with the power cord cut to certify proper disposal, according to CPSC.

Biometric gun safes imported by Awsafe

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 60,000 biometric gun safes.

The recall comes as federal regulators say the locks on the safes can fail and can be opened by unauthorized users, which could cause serious injury or even death.

The affected gun safes are black, have "Awsafe" on the front and can fit two pistols, according to regulators.

The safes were sold at Walmart stores nationwide and online and on Amazon from August 2019 until Dec. 7, 2022.

The CPSC says users should stop using the safe, remove the batteries and only use the key for the recalled safes to store firearms until they can get a free replacement.

Hyundai Genesis vehicles

Hyundai has recalled more than 90,000 of its Genesis vehicles due to a potential fire risk.

The automaker says water can enter a part in the car that starts the engine and shifts the transmission.

If that happens, it could cause an electrical short, which could cause a fire in the engine while the car is moving or parked.

The recall affects:

  • 2015-2016 Genesis
  • 2017-2019 Genesis G80, Genesis G90
  • 2019 Genesis G70

Hyundai says dealers will install a fix for free, but says owners should park outside and away from buildings in the meantime.
