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.
