Kidde recalls smoke alarm: May not go off

Approximately 452,000 smoke alarms made by Kidde are being recalled, the company said Wednesday, after the discovery of a part included in the manufacturing process that would impede the ability to detect smoke.

If no yellow cap is present, people should reinstall the smoke alarm.

If your unit is affected, please continue and register for a replacement.

The recalled models are PI2010 and PI9010 manufactured between September 10, 2016 through October 13, 2017.

That cap, seen through a slit in the edge of the units, covers one of the two smoke sensors and can compromise the unit's effectiveness. According to a CPSC announcement, "Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall/ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap".

Consumers should not remove or discard the recalled alarm until a new one is received and installed.

Last year, Kidde recalled about 40 million fire extinguishers, some of which had been on the market for decades, because they may not work right in an emergency. Consumers can also go online to www.kidde.com and click "Product Safety Recall" and request a free replacement.
