Nearly A Half Million Smoke Detectors Are Being Recalled
According to the Consumers Product Safety Commission, Kidde is recalling nearly 500,000 dual smoke alarms due to the risk of not being able to detect a fire and/or smoke. The recall notes that 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 in their home.
There are two models of Kidde smoke detectors that are being recalled. They include models PI2010 and PI9010 of Kidde dual sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms. The detectors were sold at various stores including Menards, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com. Click here for more info.
