The office of the Kansas State Fire Marshal has notified local fire departments and the public concerning a recall of Kidde dual-sensor photoelectric and ionization smoke alarms. About 452,000 smoke alarms, models P12010 and P19010, were recalled due to risk of failure to alert customers of a fire.
According to a release from the State Fire Marshal and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors, compromising the alarm’s ability to detect smoke and alert customers in the event of a fire in their home.
