As the weather warms up, we must remember that safety is important.

With high heat, fires can be an unsafe result. The last thing that you need or want is a fire to break out and you are not aware because of a faulty smoke alarm.

You need to check your smoke detectors because there is a nationwide recall in effect right now.

Why Are Smoke Detectors Being Recalled?

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging everyone across the country to throw out any smoke detectors from a particular company immediately.

On May 16th, the recall was issued for roughly 6,800 CHZHVAN Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors.

The recall was announced after the CPSC was notified of five reports of the product failing to work.

Thankfully, no injuries have been reported, however, if the product fails and does not activate during an emergency, it could cause harm to your loved ones in unsafe situations.

These specific CHZHVAN Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors were sold on Amazon by a China-based company called haikouhuidishangmaoyouxiangongsi.

Sadly, the company has not been cooperative with the current recall. It is unclear if there will be a replacement or refund given to customers since the company is uncooperative.

If you have bought one of these through this company, they are asking you to throw them out immediately.

Remember, you should be replacing your smoke detectors every 10 years. Also, you should be testing the detectors once a month to make sure they are working properly. As for batteries, they should be replaced every six months.
