In residential settings, these heat detectors are installed in kitchens, attics and garages for property protection, CPSC said. Affected devices act as sensors that trigger fire alarms or security panels when elevated heat is detected. The heat detectors can be mounted to walls or ceilings, and are labeled with “135F” and “NOT A LIFE SAFETY DEVICE.”

The recalled heat detectors were sold at Edwards’ distributors, electrical wholesalers, contractors, and fire safety professionals nationwide from January 1979 through May 2018 for between $6 to $7 per unit.

If you purchased a heat detector that is affected by this recall, you should contact a fire or security alarm professional for a free replacement. This recall began on June 17, 2020.
