'Dangerous' carbon monoxide alarms removed from Amazon and eBay

Dozens of carbon monoxide alarms sold via Amazon and eBay have been taken offline after failing safety tests. "Alex Neill, Which? managing director of home products and services, said:"It's extremely concerning that these unsafe alarms were being sold by major retailers,. "When household names such as Amazon and eBay are selling products that could put consumers at risk, it is clear more must be done by businesses and the government to proactively identify potentially dangerous products and stop them from entering people's homes." Amazon and eBay have delisted the alarms tested by Which? and another 50 lookalike alarms likely to have been manufactured in the same place. Amazon told the BBC: "All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don't will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The products in question are no longer available."
