Fire safety product maker Kidde is recalling nearly 500,000 smoke alarms
The Kirksville Fire Department would like to inform everyone of a product recall for Kidde brand alarms.
Fire safety product maker Kidde is recalling nearly 500,000 smoke alarms that could be faulty.
The recall affects the Kidde dual-sensor smoke alarm models PI2010 and PI9010. If the date code printed on the back of the alarm falls between Sept. 10, 2016, and Oct. 13, 2017, the model is affected.
"Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall/ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap," Kidde warned in an alert through the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The company warned consumers not to take apart the alarm, open the casing or remove the yellow cap.
