- Almost half a million smoke alarms nationwide are being recalled due to a risk of failure to alert consumers to a fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

Kidde dual sensor smoke alarms, models PI2010 and PI9010 are included in the recall.

"If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed", the consumer product agency states.

If your unit is affected, please continue and register for a replacement.

Of the military, Salcido (pictured) was also recorded saying: "They're dumb s***ts". His fellow council members passed a resolution calling for his resignation.

The company has received one report of the yellow protective cap being present on a smoke alarm before it was installed in a home. They should contact Kidde to request a free replacement smoke alarm, but toss the current smoke alarm only after getting the replacement.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says consumer should remove the alarm and inspect it for the presence of a yellow cap.

The service warns that people in Lincolnshire are running the risk of not having any early warning of a fire if they don't have a working smoke alarm fitted and tested appropriately.

Last year, Kidde recalled 38 million fire extinguishers because a design flaw could lead to them failing to activate during a fire emergency and parts could detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.
