Thousands of Kidde smoke alarms recalled

Kidde recalled it's Dual Sensor (Photoelectric and Ionization) Smoke Alarms.

Models PI2010 and PI9010 are being recalled.

Manufacturers say the hazard is 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, visually inspect the alarm through the opening on its side to see if there's a yellow cap.


No injuries have been reported as a result of the defect, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

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. However, for the time being, the company advises reinstalling the recalled smoke alarm until the replacement alarm is received. If it's present, contact Kidde 833-551-7739 to request a replacement; do not attempt to take apart the alarm yourself.

Almost half a million Kidde smoke alarms were recalled in March 2018 because a yellow cap, pictured, may have been left inside the alarm.

The recall comes four months after 38 million Kidde fire extinguishers were recalled.
