According to the CPSC, roughly 452,000 have been sold in the United States and 40,000 more were sold in Canada. "KIDDE" is printed on the front center of the smoke alarm.

They may fail to detect smoke, however, because a yellow plastic cap was inadvertently left covering one of two sensors during manufacturing, the CPSC said.

The report examines each geographical segment of the Smoke Alarm (Smoke Detector) market separately, leading to a more complete understanding of the market and indicating focused market strategies applicable to a practicably large market, rather than generalized policies that may or may not work at every level. The model number and date code are printed on the back of the alarm.

The alarm in question was sold at a variety of retailers, such as Home Depot and Walmart, and on Amazon from September 2016 through January 2018 for between $20 and $40. In addition, about 40,000 were sold in Canada.

To check, remove the alarm from the wall or ceiling and look through the opening on the side to see if there is a yellow cap.

Should you have a Kidde dual-sensor smoke alarm, contact Kidde to receive instructions on how to identify the presence of the yellow sensor cap and request a free replacement smoke alarm if your smoke alarm contains the yellow cap. If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed.

The sales channels includes direct and indirect Smoke Alarm (Smoke Detector) marketing, and traders, distributors, and development trends are presented in this report.
