Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves Bosch’s Radion brand Wireless Smoke Alarms installed as part of Bosch security systems.

Bosch security alarm systems use a control keypad labeled “Bosch” on the front surface. The Alarms are made of white plastic and measure 14.22 centimetres across and 6.10 centimetres high (5.6 inches by 2.4 inches, respectively) and have a Bosch label on the back with “RFSM-A”.

They are also marked with a bar code with “F01U263962” and have a 17-digit serial number starting with “0922320XXX”. The “XXX” in the 8th through 10th positions of the serial number designates the date code. Only Alarms with date codes 001 through 458 are included in the recall.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. An additional image of the recalled products is pictured on the Web site above.

According to Health Canada, the Alarms can fail to alert consumers to a fire, posing a fire hazard.

Bosch Security Systems has received two (2) reported incidents of Alarms failing to sound during installation testing, with no reported injuries.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any the recalled Alarms, which may be part of a larger, overall security system, please do not rely on them to report fire. Instead, kindly contact your Bosch dealer/installer for a free replacement Alarm. Bosch has contacted dealers and installers directly to notify them of this recall.
