The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled about 180,000 battery-powered smoke and fire alarms from Universal Security Instruments.

Due to a misaligned internal switch that is causing the alarms to not activate properly there is a significant risk of failure to alert consumers in the event of a fire.

The alarms being recalled are from Universal Security Instruments. The model numbers in question are: MI3050S or MI3050SB and also you should note the date code between January 19th, 2015 to July 11th, 2016.
