(PIX11) — More than 1.2 million smoke alarms sold in the U.S. and Canada are being recalled because there’s a possibility they’d fail to alert consumers of a fire or carbon monoxide situation after a power outage.

The recall was announced Thursday by Kidde. No incidents or injuries so far have been reported.

The recall involves three models made between the end of 2013 and the middle of 2014, with full descriptions and model numbers listed here.

The alarms were sold at home and electric supply retailers and online from January 2014 through July 2014 for $30 to $50.

Consumers can direct their questions and requests for a new alarm to 1-844-553-9011 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit their website.
