ADT issues recall for carbon monoxide detector

Some detectors not wired properly, fail to send end of 'useful life' signal


ADT has issued a recall for a carbon monoxide detector that was installed by the company between October 2008 and December 2010, according to a notice posted last week to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.

According to the notice, the recall was issued for the System Sensor CO 1224T detectors because some of the devices were not wired properly to the ADT alarm system, resulting in the failure of some of the detectors to send a signal to the panel or alarm monitoring center when they had reached the end of their "useful life."

There have been no incidents or injuries reported. Consumers can contact ADT for a free inspection and repair of the recalled detectors.
