Recall - Kidde Dual-Sensor (Photoelectric and Ionization) Smoke Alarms - Models PI2010CA and PI9010CA

Posting date: March 21, 2018

Kidde Smoke Alarm

Product description: This recall involves two models (PI2010CA and PI9010CA) of Kidde dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms manufactured between September 10, 2016 and October 13, 2017. The model number and date code are located on the back of the unit. The affected smoke alarms have a pill shaped design on the front of the unit. The affected models have a yellow cap visible through the opening on the side of the alarm.

 

To identify the presence of the yellow sensor cap:

  1. Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall/ceiling and visually inspect.

  2. Consumers should check the brand name and look for the unique design of the PI2010CA and PI9010CA smoke alarm.

  3. Consumers should then locate the locking tab on the back of the alarm, turn the alarm on its side, and look at the opening closest to the locking tab.

  4. If a yellow cap can be seen in the opening, the unit is affected and must be replaced. Consumers should not attempt to take apart the alarm, open the casing, or otherwise remove the yellow cap themselves.

  5. If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed. 

Hazard identified: A yellow cap can cover one of the two smoke sensors which compromises the smoke alarms' ability to detect smoke.As of March 7, 2018, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada or the United States.  There has been one report from a consumer who identified the yellow protective cap before installing the smoke alarm.

Number sold: Approximately 40,000 units of the affected products were sold in Canada and approximately 452,000 units were sold in the United States.

Time period sold: The recalled products were sold from November 1, 2016 to January 25, 2018.

What you should do:

Consumers should immediately contact Kidde to receive instructions on how to identify the presence of the yellow sensor cap. If the yellow sensor cap is present, request a free replacement smoke alarm. They should remove and discard the affected smoke alarm only after they receive and install the replacement alarm.

Consumers may contact Kidde toll-free at 1-833-551-7739 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m., or online. Consumers may view the release by the US CPSC on the Commission's website. Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.

 

 

 


Fire Chief Dave Sutton is urging families in LaSalle to practice their home fire escape plan as part of Fire Prevention Week. This year's theme of Fire Prevention Week, which runs from October 8-14, 2017, is "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!"

"Fire and smoke move faster than you," said Chief Sutton. "There's no time to figure out how to escape your home AFTER a fire starts. Practice an escape plan BEFORE there's a fire so you can get out safely."

In a fire, you may have just seconds to safely escape your home. Be prepared in advance with these simple steps in the infograph below for home fire escape planning.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms - New Law, Did you know?

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is known as 'The Silent Killer'Get to know CO
because you can't see it, taste it, or smell it. The only way to detect the presence of the deadly gas is to install a carbon monoxide alarm. In October 2014, the Ontario Government formally enacted a new law making carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all Ontario homes at risk of CO. 

After April 15, 2015, homeowners and landlords with buildings housing 6 residential occupancies or less are required to comply with the law.

Perth East and West Perth Fire Departments proudly present The Wake Up Call; a Carbon Monoxide awareness video.
