Kidde recalling dual-sensor smoke alarms

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

The company says the recall is due to a risk of the detector failing to alert buyers of a fire.

- Almost half a million smoke alarms nationwide are being recalled due to a risk of failure to alert consumers to a fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

About 452,000 products were sold in the U.S. "KIDDE" is printed on the front center of the smoke alarm.

The PI2010 model is AC-powered and the PI9010 is battery-powered.

A yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the alarm's ability to detect smoke.

Review the below Identification Guide to help determine if you have an affected smoke alarm. If a cap is present, do not take the alarm apart, open the casing or remove the yellow cap. They should discard the recalled smoke alarm only after they receive and install the replacement alarm.

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. Those who prefer not to call can go online can visit http://www.kidde.com and click on "Product Safety Recall" for more information.
