ADT Security Services Inc. of Boca Raton, FL has announced the recall of about 20,000 of its model CO 1224T carbon monoxide (CO) detectors manufactured in China and Mexico.
ADT reports that, due to improper wiring, the CO detectors fail to signal when they reach the end of their useful life, posing a CO poisoning hazard to consumers. The company has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the detectors, but has initiated the recall to prevent any such incidents in the future.
The recalled CO detectors were installed by ADT between October 2008 and December 2010 as part of its home security systems.
