PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Kidde is recalling 1.2 million carbon monoxide and smoke detectors because they could fail to alert you in an emergency following a power outage.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the company are now working to get the detectors out of homes and stores immediately.

This recall involves Kidde residential smoke alarm model i12010S with manufacture dates between December 18, 2013 and May 13, 2014, combination smoke/CO alarm il2010SCO with manufacture dates between December 30, 2013 and May 13, 2014, and combination smoke/CO alarm model KN-COSM-IBA with manufacture date between October 22, 2013 and May 13, 2014.

The products are all white, and have the name Kidde engraved on the front. The model numbers and manufacturer dates can be found printed on a label on the back of the alarm.

Consumers need to contact the company for a free replacement smoke or combination alarm, but should still use the alarms until a replacement is sent.

Also being recalled this week are more than 50,000 temperature probes.

iDevices is recalling the product because the plastic insulator located inside the stainless steel probe is not heat resistant, and can melt and fall into your food – posing an ingestion hazard.

The company received 11 reports of this happening, however no injuries were reported.

Consumers should stop using the probes immediately and contact iDevices for a free replacement.
