On March 21, 2018, Kidde recalled their dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – model PI9010 (DC/battery powered) with the date code of 2016 Sep. 10 through 2017 Oct. 13 and model PI2010 (AC/hardwired) with the date code 2016 Sep. 10 through 2017 Oct. 13.
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. Approximately 452,000 units were sold in the U.S.
