Recall Information
Kidde Recalls Residential Smoke Alarms and Combination Smoke/CO Alarms

Should a power outage occur at the same second that the device is performing a once-per-minute sensor health check; the device may go into a “latched” mode, causing it not to alarm in the presence of smoke and/or carbon monoxide.  An affected device will sound if it receives a signal from an alarm in the same interconnected system. Once power is restored, a latched device will sound an alarm regardless of the presence of smoke and/or carbon monoxide.

Neither Kidde nor Health Canada have received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products. Kidde discovered the issue during an internal quality check.
