Recalled fire alarm control panels may fail to alarm

Fire-Lite Alarms of Northford, CT has recalled about 530 of its fire alarm control panels manufactured in the United States.

The company says that, when used with an expander module, the recalled fire alarm control panels can fail to sound an alarm in the event of a fire, posing a risk of fire and burn hazards to consumers.  Fire-Lite says that it has not received any reports of incidents related to the defective fire alarm control panels, but has initiated the recall to prevent any such incidents in the future.

The control panels were sold through authorized wholesalers and distributors nationwide from October 2008 through March 2010 for about $2285 for the fire alarm control panel, and $875 for the expander module.
