Kidde Recalls Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms

The Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection, the Department of Permitting Services and the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service are alerting residents of a smoke alarm recall.

Kidde is recalling almost 500,000 dual sensor smoke alarms because of a manufacturing malfunction that may compromise the alarm’s ability to detect smoke. Specifically, a yellow protective cap may have been left on one of the two smoke sensors during the manufacturing process.
