Siemens Recalls 9K Smoke Detectors

The company recalled the alarms after discovering that the audible fire alarms that are used in nine Siemens, Desigo, Cerberus and Faraday alarm systems may not sound during a fire.

Siemens has recalled as many as 9,000 audible fire alarms that may possibly fail to sound during a fire.

The recall involves the firm’s SBGA-34 audible fire alarm base. The company decided to pull the alarms after discovering that the audible alarm base “can fail to sound an alarm and poses a risk of personal injury and property damage,” reports.
