Expanded Recall: Kidde Recalls Residential Smoke Alarms and Combination Smoke/CO Alarms
The September 11, 2014 recall involves Kidde branded AC/DC powered residential smoke alarms and combination smoke/CO alarms, models KN-COSM-IBACA, i12010S-CO-CA and i12010S-CA. This recall has been expanded to include one additional date code of model i12010S-CO-CA alarm.
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.
