MEDFORD, Ore. — Jackson County Fire District 3 officials are warning about a fire alarm recall. 

Fire officials said about 452,000 Kidde dual-sensor (photoelectric and ionization) smoke alarms sold in the U.S. may be defective. Another 40,000 sold in Canada may be defective.

Models PI2010 and PI9010 are being recalled.

FD3 officials also said these are not the kind they install through their free smoke alarm program.

They say smoke alarms are the best tool for early notification in the event of a fire, and everyone should check their smoke alarms to ensure they are working properly and are not part of the listed recall.
