New iPad heat damage?

Hey all,
I was just wondering if any of you had run into, or seen, anything like this before.
My parents have had the new iPad for about three months and have a Zagg Invisisheld on the front of it. They plugged it in overnight to charge it and when they came down in the morning the plug was burning hot. When they took a look at the iPad they noticed what looks like soot or heat damage along the top right corner. It seems to be working fine but it is kinda weird. Something they should take back to an apple store?

Photograph the plug, and get a very good image showing no damage to it. Then take it back because of the heat issue. That is a potential safety issue. But document that the plug still fits good and is not damaged....
