CO detectors recalled

Aspen Times Staff Report

A voluntary recall has been issued for two types of carbon monoxide detectors manufactured by Kidde Safety, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

There is a good chance that some valley residents have the faulty detectors in their homes, according to Aspen Fire Marshall Ed Van Walraven.

“This is probably one of the more popular brands,” he said.

Kidde Safety produced about 650,000 faulty “Nighthawk” models, along with 350,000 “Lifesaver” models in 1997 and 1998. The problematic alarms were then sold nationwide at hardware and mass merchandise stores beginning in 1998.

For more information, visit the Kidde Safety recall website at and follow the online instructions, or call 1-888-543-3346, between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
