Smoke Alarm Recall - March 2018

Kidde Recalls Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms – On March 21, 2018, Kidde recalled dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – models P12010 and P19010. A yellow cap left on during the manufacturing 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 being alerted to a fire in their home. About 452,000 were sold in the United States and they will need to be replaced. The consumer contact information is: Kidde toll free at 833.551.7739 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, or online at www.kidde.com and click on “Product Safety Recall” for more information. CAL FIRE – Office of the State Fire Marshal Office Information Bulletin 18-006 was issued on March 26, 2018, regarding this recall.
