Davidson County Residents urged to check smoke detector for recalled product
Nashville, TN (March 29, 2018) – According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission on March 21, 2018, the company known as Kidde recalled almost 500,000 dual sensor smoke alarms in the United States as well as Canada.
This recall is due to a manufacturing defect which can cause the detector to not be able to detect smoke as a result of a YELLOW cap that was left on the sensors inside of the detector which could prevent the detector from alerting people inside the house in the event of a fire.
If you received a free detector of this type from this department, please take a moment to check your alarm using the following instructions to determine whether or not you have a detector that may not function in the event of a fire.
You can register for a replacement if your alarm is affected by this recall at their website:

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
