Did You Check Your Smoke Detector?

This past week, North Carolina-based company Kidde, from North Carolina recalled nearly 500,000 smoke detectors that might not be able to detect smoke.  There are two models affected – PI2010CA and PI9010CA. The model numbers can be found on the back of the units. The two units were manufactured between Sept. 10, 2016, and Oct. 13, 2017

Health Canada reports that “A yellow cap left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors and compromise the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke.” About 40,000 units of the affected products were sold in Canada between Nov. 1, 2016, to Jan. 25, 2018.
