Kiddehas recalled the Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm, models PI2010 and PI9010, due to risk
of failure to alert consumers to a fire.  A yellow cap left on during themanufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the
smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, posing a risk of consumers not beingalerted to a fire in their home. Consumers should remove the alarm from the
wall/ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of thealarm for the presence of a yellow cap. Consumers should not attempt to take
apart the alarm, open the casing, or otherwise remove the yellow capthemselves. If a yellow cap is present, the consumer should immediately contact
Kidde to receive instructions and request a free replacement smoke alarm. Theyshould remove and discard the recalled smoke alarm only after they receive and
install the replacement alarm. If no yellow cap is present, consumers shouldreinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed.

 

The
firm has received one report of the yellow protective cap being present on asmoke alarm before it was installed in a consumer’s home. No reports of
incidents or injuries as a result of a yellow cap being present have beenreported. About 452,000 units were sold in the U.S. and about 40,000 were
sold in Canada at Menards, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department,home and hardware stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, ShopKidde.com and
