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

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.
