Transport Canada says a manufacturing defect in the adapters (specifically the NEMA 10-30, NEMA 14-30 and NEMA 6-50) could cause increased electrical resistance, generating excess heat that may lead to a fire.
The adapters, which sell for $100 (U.S.) through the Tesla Motors website, are designed to allow owners to plug their cars into a variety of different types of electrical outlets; in the case of the three adapters being recalled, those outlets are typically used for clothes dryers and electric welding equipment.
Owners of the 280 affected adapters will receive a redesigned replacement by mail.
