SMOKE DETECTOR RECALL

  • The Pittsburg Fire Department recommends you check your smoke detectors.  That's because of a massive recall of more than 400,000 KIDDE smoke alarms.  The company says a yellow cap that was left on during the manufacturing process can cover one of the two smoke sensors, which can hinder its ability to detect smoke.  The Pittsburg Fire Department is offering assistance in identifying recalled models.
