The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for more than 200,000 smoke and combination smoke/carbon monoxide alarms manufactured by Kidde and sold under the TruSense brand.
According to the recall notice, these smoke and combination smoke/carbon monoxide detectors may fail to alert consumers to the presence of fire, increasing the risk of injury or loss of life.
The recall includes model series 2040, 2050, 2060, and 2070 alarms. Anyone owning these models should contact the company for a replacement using the information in the USCPSC recall notice. The existing units should remain in place until you are able to install the replacements.
