Nest Recalls Smoke Alarms

Nest Labs of Palo Alto, CA has issued a recall of about 440,000 of its Nest Protect-brand smoke and CO alarms manufactured in China.

The recalled alarms are equipped with a feature that allows consumers to shut off false alarms with the wave of a hand. However, according to the company, activity near the alarms during an actual fire can actually prevent the alarm from immediately sounding when this feature is enabled.

Nest says that is has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the recalled alarms, but has initiated this voluntary product recall to prevent possible incidents in the future.

The recalled Nest alarms were sold in Best Buy, Home Depot and other retailers nationwide, and online at Nest.com, Amazon.com, BestBuy.com and HomeDepot.com from November 2013 through April 2014 for about $130.
