Kidde recalls smoke detector due to alarm failure

Kidde Recalls Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm

A yellow cap that was left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the smoke sensors, a press release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

If the yellow cap is not present, the smoke alarm is safe to reinstall and continue to use without restriction.

About 452,000 Kidde smoke alarms have been recalled in the United States due to the risk of failure to alert consumers to a fire.

The smoke alarms were sold at The Home Depot, Walmart, and other stores from September 2016 through January 2018 for between $20 and $40.
