Fire Alarm Manufacturer Recalls Defective Product
When a defective product is manufactured and sold on the open market, it often is not until someone is seriously injured or even killed that those responsible for the product issue expensive recalls. In other instances, these same companies resist pulling their products from the market even after they have been proven to be defective out of a fear of losing additional profits.
This week, the fire alarm manufacturer Sure Signal Products announced that it has issued a recall for approximately 375,000 heat-activated fire alarms manufactured from January 1, 2004 through July 1, 2015. The model numbers of alarms included in the recall are the DeTech FST2004H, MasterGuard QR50, Responsive TR70-R and Thermalink QR50.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the defective fire alarms made by Sure Signal Products contain a faulty fuse which may cause the alarm to fail, thus leaving people in danger when a fire may have ignited in their home. For its part, Sure Signal Products insists that no one has been injured as a result of their defective product; however, there remains an ongoing danger for those with these alarms in their home.
For those who believe they may be affected by this recall of Sure Signal Products fire alarms, you can call the company using the number at 855-202-3083 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. They will send you a free replacement fuse for installation into your alarm(s).
