452K dual-sensor smoke alarms sold nationwide recalled
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) - A recall has been issued for 452,000 dual-sensor smoke alarms sold nationwide, due to a risk of failure to alert during a fire.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of the Kidde dual-sensor because a yellow cap could have been left on during manufacturing, covering one of the two smoke sensors.
Consumers are urged to remove the alarm and visually inspect it by looking through the opening on the side of the unit. If you see a yellow cap, you should contact Kidde for a replacement. If no yellow cap is visible, the alarm is safe for continued use.
The alarms were sold at Home Depot, Walmart, Menards, online and at hardware retailers nationwide from September 2016 through January 2018 for $20 to $40.
