Two home products are under recall. First, ESL and Interlogix brand smoke detectors.The Consumer Product Safety Commission says radio frequency interference can cause the 400 amp and 500 series hard-wire detectors to fail to alert consumers of a fire. The alarms were installed in apartments, homes and commercial buildings from march 2013 until february of this year.
If you suspect you may be using once of these systems, you are urged to call your security or fire system provider for a replacement model.
