The Milton Fire Department is informing residents about a recall involving the Kidde NightHawk talking combo smoke/CO Alarm (KN-COSM-IBCA and KN-COSM-ICA models) with manufacture dates between June 1, 2004 and March 2011. These alarms are hard-wired into a home’s electric power.
The alarm can fail to continue to chirp when it reaches its seven year end of life if the batteries are replaced or, for the model without a battery backup, if power is removed and then restored to the alarm. This could lead consumers to believe it is still working, which poses a risk to consumers not being alerted to a fire or carbon monoxide incident in their home.
