Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms Recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Walter Kidde Portable Equipment Inc. of Mebane, N.C., has announced a voluntary recall of about 94,000 of its Model PI2000 Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms, having determined that an electrostatic discharge can damage the unit, causing it not to warn consumers of a fire.

The firm has received two reported incidents of smoke alarm malfunctions involving electrostatic discharge during installation. No injuries have been reported.

The Kidde Model PI2000 dual sensor smoke alarms can be identified by two buttons, “HUSH” and “PUSH AND HOLD TO TEST WEEKLY,” which are located on the front/center of the alarm. The model number and date code are on the back of the smoke alarm. Only date codes 2008 Aug. 01 through 2009 May 04 are included in this recall. The units, manufactured in China, were sold at retail, department, and hardware stores and through electrical distributors nationwide from August 2008 through May 2009 for between $30 and $40. Consumers should contact Kidde immediately to receive a free replacement smoke alarm. Kidde’s toll-free Recall Hotline number is (877) 524-2086, and its Web site is www.kidde.com.
