RFSM-A Radion Wireless Smoke Detector
This recall involves Bosch’s Radion wireless round smoke alarms installed as part of Bosch security systems. Bosch security alarm systems use a control keypad labeled "Bosch" on the front surface. The alarms are made of white plastic and measure 14.22 centimetres across and 6.10 centimetres high (5.6 inches x 2.4 inches). The alarms have a Bosch label on the back with "RFSM-A," a bar code with "F01U263962" and a 17-digit serial number starting with 0922320XXX. The XXX in the 8th through 10th positions of the serial number designates the date code. Only alarms with date codes 001 through 458 are included in the recall.
The alarms can fail to alert consumers to a fire, posing a fire hazard.
