Siemens Recalls Smoke Detectors for Failing to Alarm

The recall involves fire alarms featuring the SBGA-34 audible base.

Siemens has recalled as many as 9,000 audible fire alarms that may possibly fail to sound during a fire.

The recall involves the firm’s SBGA-34 audible fire alarm base. The company decided to pull the alarms after discovering that the audible alarm base “can fail to sound an alarm and poses a risk of personal injury and property damage,” reports.
