The Kidde dual sensor model smoke detector is under recall

Your family's chances of surviving a home fire DOUBLE when there are working smoke alarms in the home. This defect could cause the alarm to not detect any smoke.

Kidde is recalling its dual-sensor smoke alarm due to a high risk of failure to alert consumers to a fire. It also sheds light on the recent developments in the Smoke Alarm (Smoke Detector) market competitive landscape. There are no reports of incidents or injuries as a result of a yellow cap being present on models PI9010 and PI2010.

"This poses an immediate and unsafe risk ... as properly functioning smoke alarms are a life-saving tool from the dangers of fire-related incidents and smoke inhalation".

They were sold through retailers including Wal-Mart, Amazon and Home Depot as well as from Kidde's website.

If your model doesn't have a pill shape across the front, you're not affected.

The company says that a yellow safety cap could have been left on from the manufacturing process. All models were sold between September 2016 and January 2018.

If present, they say the cap can block the alarm's sensors.

To do this, they'll need to look in through an opening in the side and check for a yellow cap.

The recall affects about 452,000 in the US and about 40,000 in Canada.
