Kidde is voluntarily recalling about 226,000 smoke alarms and combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms over concerns that they can fail to alert users to a fire. If you need assistance in determining if your Smoke Alarm is part of this recall you can go to CPSC’s website. Only alarms with the TruSense logo or “AMBER=FAULT” printed on the front of the alarm are included in this recall. You should be able to visualize this writing easily. Consumers should immediately contact Kidde for a free replacement alarm and should keep using the recalled alarms until they install replacement alarms. No incidents or injuries have been reported so far associated with the units.
Visit the manufacturer's website for additional information and guidelines to determine if your smoke alarm is a recalled one. If you need additional assistance, please complete our Request Form for smoke alarm assistance and we will reach out to assist you.
