3.6M possibly defective 2-in-1 alarms in the US and Canada recalled

An estimated 3.6 million units of alarms capable of detecting smoke and leaking carbon monoxide (CO) sold in the U.S. and in Canada are being recalled due to a possible defect that could cause serious harm to consumers, a November 10 article of cpsc.gov stated.

The recall affects the alarms of “Kidde NightHawk combination smoke/CO” that may fail to produce chirping sound after consumers replace its batteries. Consumers who the product are required to replace its batteries every seven years, however, the detectors could fail to alert consumers after they replaced its batteries. Kidde and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have been notified of eight malfunctioning detectors that did not result in injuries. Consumers have been advised to stop from using the affected Kidde products and coordinate with the company for a product replacement.
