Kidde recalls millions of smoke alarms

(WLNS) – A smoke and carbon monoxide detector that is apparently not alerting people to when it is no longer working is being recalled.

The recall involves millions of the Kidde Nighthawk Talking combo smoke alarms with model number KN-COSM-IB.

They were manufactured between June 1, 2004 and December 31, 2010.

The company says the alarms might not chirp after it reaches its seven year “end of life” even if the batteries are replaced leading people to believe it’s still working.

There have been eight reports of incidents with the alarm but no injuries.

If you have one, stop using it and call Kidde at from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at and click on “Product Safety Notice.”
