Honeywell Fire Alarm Recall: Systems Installed in Apartments, Commercial Buildings May Fail

The recall affects nearly 30,000 wall-mounted Honeywell fire alarms that may have problems alerting residents or office workers about a fire emergency.

Thousands of Honeywell System Sensor L-Series Fire Alarms installed in residential apartments and office buildings have been recalled, due to a risk that the sounders and strobes may malfunction, potentially failing to alert those nearby of a fire.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Honeywell fire alarm recall on March 14, following at least two reports of the systems either emitting too quiet an alarm to be useful, or not sounding an alarm at all.

The System Sensor L-Series low frequency sounders and strobes are primarily used in residential apartments and commercial buildings, and are typically wall-mounted, featuring a square shape and a housing available in red or white plastic.
