[July 10, 2009]  SPRINGFIELD -- State Fire Marshal David B. Foreman is urging Illinois residents to check their smoke detectors and immediately discontinue use if they are the model that was recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday. The CPSC recalled more than 90,000 smoke alarms that may not sound in case of a fire.

"I strongly urge all homeowners, renters and landlords to check and see if their alarms are included in this recall. Not doing so can put your family and loved ones at risk," Foreman said.

According to CPSC, the units in question, Kidde Model PI2000 Dual Sensor Smoke Alarms, were manufactured and sold across the country between August 2008 and May 2009. The recalled alarms can also be identified by two buttons, "HUSH" and "PUSH AND HOLD TO TEST WEEKLY," which are located on the front, center of the alarm.

Kidde is providing replacement alarms that can be obtained by calling 1-877-524-2086 or at For more information about the recalled smoke alarms, visit or
