Feds Warn of Home Carbon Monoxide Detectors That May Fail to Alarm

THURSDAY, Sept. 22, 2022 (HealthDay News) -- Consumers should immediately stop using HECOPRO digital display carbon monoxide (CO) detectors because they can fail to warn about the presence of the dangerous gas, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said.

The CPSC issued the warning Thursday after detectors sold on Amazon.com failed tests with a CO concentration of 400 ppm, in violation of safety standards.
