Carbon Monoxide Alarms Fail to Alert Consumer, Recalled
About 20,000 Carbon Monoxide detectors have been recalled after it was discovered that they fail to alert owners when they need to be replaced, according to recent new sources.
The recalled products, CO 1224T Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors, were made by ADT Security Sevices Inc. of Boca Raton, Florida. Carbon Monoxide detectors should alert the owner when they are coming to the end of their life, as well as sending a signal to ADT’s alarm monitoring center. However, some of the products are not properly wired, which means neither the ADT center nor the consumer are made aware of the product no longer functioning. This could lead to a poisoning hazard.
No injuries have been reported in relation to this recall at this time. The products were sold between October 2008 and December 2010 as a part of home security installations.
If you have one of these alarms, you can contact ADT for a free inspection and free repair. ADT has contacted all customers affected by this recall.
