System Sensor is recalling around 1,450 System Sensor i4 series combination carbon monoxide (CO)/smoke detectors after learning that the device may fail to detect carbon monoxide gas, which may increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning at home, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported on February 11.
Affected models are COSMO-2W and COSMO-4W, which were manufactured from September 3 to September 13, 2014. The recalled units are approximately 5.5 inches in diameter, and have date codes of 4091 or 4092 located at the product’s packaging or at the bottom of the product label.
The company said customers should contact the company for a free replacement, although they may have to keep using the defective product until a replacement is installed.
Safety features like this are designed to keep homes safe air poisoning and fires. If poorly manufactured, however, they could cause tremendous harm.
