KIDDE RECALLS DUAL SENSOR SMOKE ALARMS DUE TO RISK OF FAILURE TO ALERT CONSUMERS TO A FIRE
The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office is sharing this information in an effort to provide the public with a concern about a recent recall of Kidde Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms - Models PI2010 (AC/hardwired - Date Code 9/10/2016-10/13/2017) and PI9010 (DC/battery powered - Date Code 9/10/2016 - 10/13/2017) manufactured by the Kidde Corporation. The smoke alarms listed in the recall are revealed in the link https://kidde-smoke-alarm-recallusen.expertinquiry.com/instructions .

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.
