Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Smoke Alarms are subject to this recall:

  • Quell QPI9010 Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm, consisting of a Quell branded dual sensor (photoelectric and ionisation) Smoke Alarm (DC/battery powered) manufactured between 10th September 2016 and 13th October 2017. This recall only includes units containing a yellow protective cap.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Quell branded Smoke Alarms are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, in some Smoke Alarms a yellow protective cap may have been left on one of the two smoke sensors during the manufacturing process. The yellow protective cap compromises the Smoke Alarms’ ability to detect smoke, which can increase the risk of injury and/or property damage in the event of a fire.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Smoke Alarms, please inspect the Alarm for the presence of a yellow cap, following the attached instructions:

  • If a yellow cap is not present, you should reinstall the Smoke Alarm and no further action is needed.
  • If a yellow cap is present, please contact Quell for further instructions and to receive a free replacement. You should not attempt to take apart the alarm, open the casing, or otherwise remove the yellow cap yourself. You should reinstall the Smoke Alarm and only return the affected Smoke Alarm after they receive and install the replacement.
