First Alert, BRK Brands, and Consumer Product Safety Commission have announced that some First Alert ONELINK battery powered smoke and combination smoke/carbon monoxide alarms may experience a premature low battery condition. The defects may cause the batteries to drain in less than 6 weeks instead of the 1-year the batteries are supposed to last. Consumers will be notified of the low battery condition by a chirping sound that the unit will make. This is a voluntary recall. The following units may be included in the Recall: First Alert Models # SA500 and SCO500 with date codes prior to March 2006.
If you have any of these alarms, call 1-800-323-9005 to receive a free replacement alarm. Do not remove your alarm until you have received a replacement.
