Do not use this carbon monoxide alarm, warn safety regulators

SAN ANTONIO – The US Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning people to stop using HECOPRO digital display carbon monoxide detectors as they may not warn of the presence of the hazardous gas.

The CPSC issued the warning Thursday after detectors sold on Amazon failed tests with a CO concentration of 400 ppm, in violation of safety standards. At persistent levels above 150 to 200 ppm, disorientation, loss of consciousness and death are possible, according to the committee.

The detectors in the alert were sold on Amazon under ASIN B07T66J7KJ for a price between $9 and $13. They are made of white plastic and have a digital display.

The CPSC said consumers should not buy these particular detectors and throw them away if they have them.

Accidental carbon monoxide poisoning associated with products kills more than 150 lives in the US each year.
