The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer:
Voluntary Recall and Exchange Programme for Power Adapters sold with Select Fire Tablets in the United Kingdom and Ireland
We have determined that, in rare cases, when the power adapter included with the UK Fire 7″ and UK Fire Kids Edition 7″ tablet is pulled from the wall socket, the adapter assembly may detach and create a risk of electrical shock. Affected adapters were sold only in the United Kingdom and Ireland from September 2015.
Customer safety is our top priority, and we are proactively offering to replace these power adapters with a new adapter, free of charge. We encourage customers to exchange their original power adapters using the process on our website.
Please discontinue use of your original adapter. Until you receive a replacement adapter, you can use the included USB cable connected to a computer or another compatible adapter to charge your tablet.
