The Belleville Fire Department is warning residents about a smoke alarm recall.
The recall, issued by the company Kidde, Health Canada and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, covers two models of Kidde Nighthawk, hard-wired combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
Under certain circumstances, the alarm can fail to continue to chirp when it reaches its end of life, after seven years, leading consumers to believe that it is still working.
The alarms were manufactured between June 1, 2004, and March 2011.
Approximately 1.5 million units were sold in Canada and 3.6 million units were sold in the United States.
The company has received eight reports of incidents in the United States.
Belleville Fire Prevention Officer John Lake is advising anyone needing information or assistance to call their local fire department.
