5.6 million smoke detectors recalled in North America

(WSVN) - More than five million smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have been recalled in the United States and Canada.

Kidde is recalling the NightHawk talking combo smoke/CO alarm after it was brought to light that the alarm can fail to chirp and notify consumers that it needs to be replaced. This would lead consumers to believe the faulty devices are working.

The recall affects alarms with the model number KN-COSM-IB, manufactured between June 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010.

Consumers should stop using the device and contact Kidde for either a free replacement or a discount on a new alarm, depending on the purchase date.

Kidde can be contacted at 855-239-0490 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.kidde.com
