Kidde Recalls TrueSense Smoke Alarms
On June 2, 2021 by Jeff Bostic
On May 6, 2021, and in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kidde voluntarily announced a recall to replace Kidde TruSense Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms. In certain instances, the product may experience a delay in detection or may fail to detect smoke, which could compromise the alarms' ability to alert consumers to a potential fire.
According to the CPSC notification, the recalled units are Kidde Model Series 2040, 2050, 2060 and 2070 Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide alarms. Only alarms with the TruSense logo or “AMBER=FAULT” printed on the front of the alarm are included in this recall.
Kidde indicates that the recalled models would have been purchased from May 2019 through September 2020 and intends to work with customers to replace all affected units with new alarms.
