Kidde is recalling two models of smoke detectors that may have partially covered smoke sensors and fail to go off in the presence of fire.

These two models, PI2010 and PI9010, might have a yellow cap on one of the sensors that was not removed during production. If you have one of the affected models, you should take your smoke detector down and look through the side opening for a yellow cap inside the alarm. Do not take the device apart; go to Kidde’s website for directions on how to return the alarm and get a replacement.
