If a yellow cap is present, consumers should immediately contact Kidde to receive instructions and request a free replacement smoke alarm. They should remove and discard the recalled smoke alarm only after they receive and install the replacement alarm.

If the yellow cap is not present, the smoke alarm is safe to reinstall and continue to use without restriction.
