Kidde Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms Recalled For Failure To Work During Fire
Kidde has issued a recall for two of their Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms as a cap was left on during the manufacturing process and it covers one of the smoke sensors making it so the alarm can’t detect smoke or a fire. See more about this recall here.
The recall involves model numbers PI2010 and PI9010 that were sold at Menards, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores as well as online at Amazon from September 2016 to January 2018.
If you own one of these smoke alarms, remove it from the wall or ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm to see if there is a yellow cap. Do not attempt to take apart the alarm, open the casing, or otherwise remove the yellow cap themselves. If a yellow cap is present, contact Kidde to receive a replacement alarm. Contact Kidde here or by calling 833-551-7739.
