Kidde recalled thousands of TruSense Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms Thursday because they "fail to alert consumers to a fire."

Approximately 220,000 Kidde smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms were recalled from a variety of Chicago area department stores, including Walmart, Home Depot, Menards and websites like Amazon.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the arms "can fail to alert consumers to a fire" and should be replaced. For a free replacement, call (844) 796-9972 or go online to

The following models should be immediately replaced, the company said:

  • 2040-DSR
  • 2050-DS10
  • 2060-ASR
  • 2070-VDSCR
  • 2070-VASCR
  • 2070-VASR

The models should have the TruSense logo or "AMBER=FAULT" printed on the front of the alarm, if included in the recall, according to Kidde.
