Product Recall

On 11 April 2018, Quell announced a recall to replace one model of Quell dual sensor (photoelectric / ionization) smoke alarm – model number QPI9010, manufactured between 10th September 2016 and 13th October 2017


DEFECT: In some products a yellow protective cap may have been left on one of the two smoke sensors during the manufacturing process.

HAZARD: The yellow protective cap compromises the smoke alarm’s ability to detect smoke, which can increase the risk of injury and/or property damage in the event of a fire.

WHAT TO DO: Using the guide provided, visually inspect the product through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap. If a yellow cap is present, immediately contact Quell for further instructions and to receive a free replacement smoke alarm. DO NOT remove or return the affected smoke alarm until after receiving and installing the replacement
