Apple recalling faulty USB-C charging cables

Apple is recalling some faulty USB-C charge cables that were included with last year's super-slim Macbooks as they may fail.
Apple has started recalling some faulty USB-C charging cables because they "may fail due to a design issue."
Apple didn't say what might happen if it fails, but it's probably best not to find out firsthand. Some cheap ones, for example, have been known to fry laptops, but hopefully it's nothing so drastic.
The cables being recalled were included with its super-slim Macbooks in 2015. Not every USB-C cable is affected though. The cables being recalled don't feature a serial number as you can see in the image below.
If your Macbook was registered with an address when you bought it, Apple will have a replacement cable sent to you by the end of the month. Otherwise, you'll need to contact a store or request one online.
