DEFECT: In some products a yellow protective cap may have been left on one of the two smoke sensors during the manufacturing process.
HAZARD: The yellow protective cap compromises the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, which can increase the risk of injury and/or property damage in the event of a fire.
WHAT TO DO: Using the guide provided, visually inspect the product through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap. If a yellow cap is present, immediately contact Quell for further instructions and to receive a free replacement smoke alarm.
