ALERT! 1.3 Million Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detectors Recalled
1.3 million smoke/carbon monoxide detectors have been recalled. These are the hard wire type connected directly to house wiring. These may have been installed in new homes during the building process.

Please check yours to see if they are Kidde brand. This is a serious issue folks. Make sure that your family and pets will be safe!

1.3 Million Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Recalled

More than 1 million alarms intended to alert people to smoke and carbon monoxide in their homes are being recalled because of a defect that could cause them to fail, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Thursday.

The Kidde smoke alarms and combination smoke detector/CO alarms are hard-wired, and can fail following a power outage, the CPSC said. About 1.2 million were sold in the U.S. and about 112,000 were sold in Canada. The problem, Kidde said, is in the programming code of the devices.

Two years ago I woke up from a post-work nap to smoke so thick it made me immediately vomit when I stood up into it.

Had hard wired smoke detectors, never went off. Sucked.

Will check. The oddest thing happened a few years back.
The hardwired smoke detectors went off.

There was no fire anywhere.

It never happened again.

Yeah our oven sets the kitchen one off when we open it up. Very annoying and poor placement by builder. When it gets triggered all of them go off, dogs howl, lol. Sometimes when we turn the heat on for the first time in winter they'll go off too.

Anyway, you're welcome folks. Better to be safe than sorry.
