The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a nationwide recall for a Kidde smoke detector product that has failed to alert consumers to a fire. The CPSC recalled the Kidde TruSense Smoke Alarms and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms Thursday. The agency recommends replacing them to fix the problem. The product was sold from May 2019 through September 2020.
Additionally, Kidde announced a recall to replace certain Kidde fire extinguishers. The replacement program was initiated because certain fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to activate, posing a risk of failure to discharge. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard. The product recall involves two styles of Kidde disposable fire extinguishers: plastic handle fire extinguishers and plastic push-button fire extinguishers.
