3.6 million smoke detectors recalled because they may not alert people to fire

NH1.com

Millions of Kidde fire alarms have been recalled because they may not function correctly in the event that there is a fire.

Kidde NightHawk combination smoke/CO alarms with the model number KN-COSM-IB manufactured between June 1, 2004 and Dec. 31, 2010 are effected.

It's been reported that if the battery is replaced, the alarms may not chirp when they reach the end of their seven year lifespan. This can cause people to believe they are still working when in fact they have expired.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has received eight reports about the alarms but no injuries have been reported.

Anyone who owns these alarms should call Kidde at 855-239-0490 for a free replacement or discount toward a new alarm.
