Name of product: Kidde dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – models PI2010 and PI9010.

Hazard: A yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, posing a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire in their home.

Remedy: Replace

Recall date: March 21, 2018
