RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Kidde NightHawk combination smoke/carbon monoxide alarms are being recalled because even if users replace the batteries, the alarm can fail to chirp when it reaches its seven-year end of life.
As a result, the alarms may not alert users of a fire or carbon monoxide incident in their homes.There have been eight reports of incidents with these alarms, but no injuries have been reported.
These alarms were sold online and across the country. For a full list of model numbers and manufacture dates, click here.
