MELVILLE, N.Y.—Honeywell Fire Systems has identified an issue with its BG-10 Series fire alarm pull stations that can affect normal operation, according to a company bulletin. Honeywell strongly recommends that such devices be replaced.

The BG-10 Series pull stations were manufactured from 1992 through 2010, though the majority were manufactured between 1992 and 2000. The devices were distributed under multiple brands, including ADT, Fire-Lite Alarms, Johnson Control Inc., and Notifier.

The issue is related to the seal installed around the alarm switch, which can deteriorate over time, preventing the switch from signaling an alarm when the pull station is activated, the company said.
