On Feb. 8, 2024, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled CableMod’s GPU angled adapters due to fire and burn injury hazards.
According to the CPSC, the adapters’ male connector can loosen, overheat, and melt into the GPU, posing a risk of fire and burn injuries.
The CPSC has received 272 incident reports of the adapters loosening, overheating, and melting into the GPU, causing up to $74,500 in property damage.
The recall affects CableMod Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) V1.0 and V.1.1 angled adapters. These adapters plug into a graphics processing unit’s power port at a 90-degree or a 180-degree angle.
The adapters were sold in two variations to accommodate power port orientation, Variation A and Variation B.
The CPSC advises consumers to stop using the recalled adapters immediately, remove them from the GPU, and destroy them properly per local guidelines.
