More than one million smoke and combination smoke-carbon monoxide alarms are being recalled.

Kidde is recalling the alarms because they can fail to alert consumers of a fire or a carbon monoxide incident following a power outage.

The products in question are residential alarms that are hard-wired into a home’s electric power.

The affected alarms are white and round and Kidde is engraved on the front.

Consumers should contact Kidde for a free replacement alarm and keep using the recalled alarms until they install the replacement.
