Bosch Security Systems Inc. is recalling almost one thousand faulty smoke alarms that could fail to alert consumers if a fire broke out.
During installation testing, two alarms failed to sound. Failure to notify residents of the presence of smoke or a fire could be extremely dangerous, resulting in injury or death.
Bosch is recalling an estimated 950 Radion wireless smoke alarms because the model failed to sound during installation testing. The smoke alarms are a part of Bosch’s security solutions.
The alarms are made of white plastic with a control keypad labeled “Bosch” on the front face. The product measures 5.6 inches across and 2.4 inches high.
“The alarms have a Bosch label on the back with ‘RFSM-A,’ a bar code with ‘F01U263962’ and a 17-digit serial number starting with 0922320XXX. The XXX in the 8th through 10th positions of the serial number designates the date code. Only alarms with date codes 001 through 458 are included in the recall,” according to the CPSC.
The smoke alarms were manufactured in China and sold in at dealers nationwide from November 2013 through October 2014. The product was priced at about $125.
Bosch has contacted dealers and installers to inform them about the recall, but consumers should immediately contact the place of purchase for a free alarm replacement.
