The Consumer Product Safety Commission is telling consumers to stop using certain carbon monoxide detectors sold by Amazon.
The GLBSUNION and CUZMAK digital display detectors do not alert people to the presence of carbon monoxide, the CPSC said in a news release.
Because of the failure to alert consumers, the carbon monoxide increases the risk of injury or death, the CPSC said. The detectors “failed to alert when exposed to pre-determined concentrations of carbon monoxide (400 ppm), in violation of UL 2034, a voluntary safety standard.”
The devices are made of white plastic and are about 4 inches in diameter with a digital display, flashing red light and loud alarm.
The following carbon monoxide detectors are affected by the alert:
- Model No. AJ0938 sold under the Amazon ASIN B093Y1KK5Q and B093Y637CM
- Model No. CD01 sold under the Amazon ASIN B07MPVK6HG and B)&K44HLCV
They were all sold for between $16 and $40 on Amazon.com.
If you have the detectors involved in the CPSC alert, you’re being told to stop using them and dispose of the alarms immediately and install new, working ones.
