Watchdog warns buyers to beware.

An all-in-one iPad accessory kit has been recalled by the ACCC due to the possibility of electric shock and fire.

The consumer watchdog last week issued a recall for the product, sold by daily deals website Door Buster, citing a lack of compliance with Australian safety standards.

The kit, available in both black and white, includes an iPad case, stylus and screen protector, as well as a 3 in 1 charger pack. The charger pack is the only item being recalled. 

The kit was on sale nationally for a week from August 1 this year.

The ACCC said anyone who has purchased the kit should stop using the charger immediately. Customers will be given a full refund once the charger is returned, but are able to keep the other items in the accessory pack. 

It is unknown how many kits have been sold. The ACCC said it understood there have been no customer injuries to date.
