KIDDE RECALLS DUAL SENSOR SMOKE ALARMS DUE TO RISK OF FAILURE TO ALERT CONSUMERS TO A FIRE
Please take a moment to read the information on the link provided and check to see if your smoke alarm model numbers are a match to those on the recall.
On March 21, 2018, Kidde announced a recall of almost 500,000 smoke alarms in the United States. They may not work due to a yellow protective cap that may have been left on one of the two smoke sensors in affected products during the manufacturing process. This could compromise the smoke alarms' ability to detect smoke which poses a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire in their home.
Kidde recommends owners immediately replace these smoke alarms.
