RECALL: Manufactured Homes by Cavco (Fleetwood and Palm Harbor Homes) - Kidde Smoke and Combination Smoke/CO Alarm


Manufactured Homes by Cavco (Fleetwood and Palm Harbor Homes) - Kidde Smoke and Combination Smoke/CO Alarm.  On September 11, 2014, the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall as the alarms could fail to alert consumers of a fire or a CO incident following a power outage.  The alarms in questions are hard-wired into the home’s electrical system. The manufacturer and Kidde have in place a notification for homes affected and the process to address remedial action for homes that may have been constructed with the Kidde Smoke detectors specified in the recall.
