Smoke Detector Recall
About 1.2 million smoke alarms have been recalled in the United States and about 112,000 in Canada due to alarm failures after power outages.
The recalled models include:
- Kidde residential smoke alarm model i12010S with manufacture dates between Dec. 18, 2013 and May 13, 2014
- Combination smoke/CO alarm il2010SCO with manufacture dates between Dec. 30, 2013 and May 13, 2014
- Combination smoke/CO alarm model KN-COSM-IBA with manufacture date between Oct. 22, 2013 and May 13, 2014
The alarms look like a typical white, round smoke alarm and they are about 5 to 6 inches in diameter with the word Kidde engraved on it.
So far, no injuries have been reported. The company suggests that customers contact Kidde for a free replacement alarm, but continue to use existing alarms until the replacement is installed.
These alarms were sold at online and at several retailers including CED, City Electric Supply, HD Supply, Home Depot, and Menards Inc. for between $30 and $50.
