On May 6, 2021 and in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kidde voluntarily announced a recall to replace Kidde TruSense Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms. In certain instances, the product may experience a delay in detection, or may fail to detect, smoke, which could compromise the alarms’ ability to alert consumers to a potential fire.

How to identify TruSense alarms & receive a free replacement

This recall is for consumers who purchased TruSense alarms between May 2019 and September 2020. For our customers with impacted products, our goal is to make this as simple as possible. We have available detailed instructions on how to identify affected alarms and receive replacement alarm(s) free of charge, how to properly dispose of an affected alarm(s) once the replacement is received, as well as other information on our dedicated website.

 

Affected Models - Only those with "TRUSENSE" and/or "AMBER = FAULT"

The recalled models are the TruSense 2040, 2050, 2060 and 2070 lines, purchased May 2019 through September 2020, due to a potential safety risk. Kidde intends to work with customers to replace all affected units with new alarms. We apologize for the inconvenience and are offering replacement alarms with enhanced features such as built-in 10-year batteries that eliminate additional costs and time through the elimination of battery changes over the 10-year life of the alarm.
