Recall On Kidde Smoke/CO Alarms

The Seattle Fire Department (SFD) is urging people to check the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their homes after a major manufacturer of the products recently announced a recall.

According to SFD, Kidde is recalling about 226,000 of its smoke, carbon monoxide and combination alarms. The recall covers seven models manufactured between May 2019 and September 2020. For Seattle area residents, the retailers where these units were likely sold include The Home Depot, Walmart and Amazon. Individuals are encouraged to check any alarm in their homes to see if it is included in the recall. The company will replace alarms affected by the recall.

The models to look for include:

2040-DSR

2050-DS10

2060-ASR

2070-VASR

2070- VDSCR

2070-VDSR

Kidde has prepared a guide to help consumers identify if their smoke, carbon monoxide or combination alarms are included. Visit the Kidde Recall webpage and open the step-by-step guide to also learn how to submit a claim for replacement.

Kidde’s support center is also available by phone at 844-796-9972 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST on Saturday.
