Microsoft said it would recall Surface Pro power cords to head off potential fire risks, and it's following through on that promise. The Redmond crew has officially recalled about 2.25 million AC power cables for Surface Pro tablets sold before March 15th, 2015. If you own a Surface Pro 3 or earlier, you're likely due for a free replacement. There haven't been many reports of these cables catching fire (56, to be exact), but it's safe to say that you don't want to take a chance if you can avoid it.
