Kidde just released a massive recall on 500,000 smoke detectors.
A yellow cap inadvertently left on the smoke alarms during the manufacturing process could cover one of the detector’s smoke sensors, potentially blocking its ability to detect smoke and warn people of a fire in their houses.
Check the recall to see if it applies to you.
