New Englander’s Urged to Check their Smoke Alarms; Kidde Recall
A recall has been issued for over 400,000 Kidde smoke alarms in the United States because there is the possibility that the product could not alert consumers to a fire.
According to Kidde and United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, posing a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire.
The products involved in the recall are:
Kidde dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – models PI2010 and PI9010
The alarms were sold at department stores including Walmart, Home Depot among others. Plus, on websites including Amazon and Kidde between September 2016 and January 2018.
