Kidde Recalls Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm Due To Potential Safety Risk

 

Kidde has recalled its Dual Sensor (Photoelectric and Ionization) Smoke Alarms, Models PI2010 and PI9010, due to a potential safety risk.

A yellow protective cap in limited instances may have been left on one of the two smoke sensors in affected products during the manufacturing process, which could compromise the smoke alarms’ ability to detect smoke.

Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall or ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap. Consumers should not attempt to take apart the alarm, open the casing or otherwise remove the yellow cap themselves.

If a yellow cap is present, the consumer should immediately contact Kidde to receive instructions and request a free replacement smoke alarm. They should remove and discard the recalled smoke alarm only after they receive and install the replacement alarm.

If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed.

These smoke alarm models were sold at Menards, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, ShopKidde.com and other websites from September 2016 through January 2018 for between $20 and $40.
