Kidde Recalls 1.2M Smoke/CO Alarms
The company recalled the alarms after the devices failed to alert users of a fire or carbon monoxide incident following a power outage.
Kidde has recalled as many as 1.2 million hard-wired smoke and combination smoke/carbon monoxide alarms.
The company decided to pull the alarms after it discovered the devices failed to alert users of a fire or a carbon monoxide incident following a power outage, The Valley Gazette reports.
No injuries have been reported.
Recalled models include:
- Smoke alarm i12010S, manufactured between Dec. 18, 2013 and May 13, 2014

The model number, as well as the manufacture dates, are printed on the back of the alarm.
Individuals who purchased a recalled model should contact Kidde for a replacement; however, the company advises consumers to continue using the recalled alarms until the replacements are installed.
