Kidde Recalls Millions of Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Kidde is recalling millions of Night Hawk combination smoke/Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarms sold in the United States and Canada. According to Consumer Affairs, the alarm can fail to continue to chirp when the detector reaches it's seven (7) year end of life if the batteries are replaced, leading consumers to believe the alarm is still functioning. This poses a risk to consumers of not being alerted to a fire or CO emergency in their home. The company has received reports of incidents with the alarm, but no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves the Kidde Night Hawk talking combination smoke/CO alarm, model number KN-COSM-IB with manufacture dates between June 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010. The units are hard wired and has a compartment on the back for a replaceable 9-volt battery. Consumers can contact Kidde online or call 855-239-0490.
