Smoke alarm recall: Nearly half a million may fail to detect fire

By Heather Butterworth - Digital Content Producer


Nearly half a million smoke alarms are being recalled because of an issue that compromises the alarm's ability to detect smoke. 

The Kidde dual-sensor alarms were sold for between $20 and $40 from September 2016 to January 2018. They were sold on Amazon and at Walmart, The Home Depot, Menards, and other home and hardware stores. 

The recall covers models PI2010 (AC/hardwired) and PI9010 (DC/battery powered). 

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