Name of product: Kidde dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms – models PI2010 and PI9010

Hazard: 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, posing a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire in their home.

Remedy: Replace

Recall date: March 21, 2018

Units: About 452,000 in the U.S. (In addition, about 40,000 were sold in Canada.)

Kidde seems to be having some serious QC issues of late. Not exactly what you want to be known for if you're in the business of selling goods designed to protect when the rare and unexpected happens.

Doesn't impact me, but thanks all the same for a valuable PSA.
