Kidde recalls dual sensor smoke alarms

Kidde has recalled dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – models PI2010 and PI9010. A yellow cap left on during manufacturing can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the alarm’s ability to detect smoke. The alarms were sold at Menards, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores nationwide and online from September 2016 through January 2018 for between $20 and $40. Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall/ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap. If a yellow cap is present, the consumer should immediately contact Kidde to receive instructions and request a free replacement smoke alarm. If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed.
