Sony Corp. is recalling 3.5 million faulty power adaptors for its popular PlayStation 2 video game console because they may overheat and cause injury, the Japanese consumer electronics manufacturer said on Tuesday.
The adaptors were made between August and December of 2004 for the slimline PlayStation 2, which has a free-standing power adaptor to save space. About 2.3 million of the devices were sold in Europe, with the remainder going to Asia and North America.
PlayStation 2 owners can go to Web site www.ps2ac.com to determine if their adaptors are being recalled.
