Dual Smoke Sensor Recalled

Smoke alarm manufacturer Kidde is recalling half a million smoke alarms that may not work properly.

Models PI2010 and PI9010 are being recalled.

The models are Kidde dual-sensor smoke alarms. "If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed".

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

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

The cap can cover one of the two smoke sensors, causing a failure to detect smoke. If the yellow cap is there, the consumer should contact Kidde for a free replacement.

The service warns that people in Lincolnshire are running the risk of not having any early warning of a fire if they don't have a working smoke alarm fitted and tested appropriately.

During the inspection, Kidde advises consumers to not take apart the alarm, open the casing or otherwise remove the yellow cap, if present.

The affected units had date codes from September 10, 2016, through October 13, 2017, and included the models PI9010 - which is DC or battery-powered - and PI2010, which is AC or hardwired.
