Smoke Alarm, Electric Heater Recalled

The Nov. 4 report from the EU's Rapid Alert System for Non-Food Products included both of these recalls, with the smoke alarms seized by French authorities.

The latest report of safety recalls in the European Union includes a smoke alarm voluntarily recalled and seized by authorities in France and an electric heater with a faulty thermostat. Both were manufactured in China, the Nov. 4 report from the EU’s Rapid Alert System for Non-Food Products (RAPEX) states.

The smoke alarm could not detect commonly occurring types of fire and produced insufficient sound volume to alert those around it, according to the report, which said the IDK alarm, model DET 010/KD-107, does not comply with the Construction Products Directive or the European standard EN 14604.

The Matsui brand electric heater, model number M15ORW09, has been voluntarily recalled in the UK because its thermostat can fail, allowing the device to overheat. One fire has been reported, according to the notice.
