    9to5 Mac reports today that Apple has in the past week been recalling Verizon iPad 2s in mid shipment on their way over from China, and then sending out replacements to the customer. According to their sources, the iPad 2s in question are all Verizon devices that have been shipped by FedEX, and they are also all engraved. 9to5 Mac has also heard that Apple has given all its US retail stores a list of serial numbers which they must scan their iPad 2 stocks for, and if they find an iPad 2 with one of the serial numbers, they have to send it back to Apple. One Apple store employee told them that he or she started the scanning on Monday, and that all shipments up until June 11th were to be similarly scanned. Apparently just that one person had to send back over 100 iPad 2s.

    Right now, no one is exactly sure whey the Verizon iPad 2s are being recalled in such large numbers. 9to5 Mac has heard that it doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that the iPad 2s are all engraved, and that the issue is actually “device specific, not software.†The source has also said that the problem has something to do with the iPad 2s not being able to bring up account information when their cellular service is activated.

    Does this in any way affect the ones that were shipped about a month ago?
