Kidde Recalls Faulty Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Walter Kidde Portable Equipment Company of Mebane, N.C., recalled about 226,000 Kidde TruSense Smoke Alarms and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms due to potential safety risk.

The smoke alarm and the combination smoke/carbon monoxide (CO) alarm can fail to alert consumers to a fire.

This recall involves Kidde TruSense Smoke Alarms and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms.

The alarms were manufactured in China and were sold at Walmart, Home Depot, Menards and other department, home and hardware stores and electrical distributors nationwide, and online.

The company urges consumers to immediately contact Kidde for a free replacement alarm. Consumers should keep using the recalled alarms until they install replacement alarms.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
