The alarms may fail to alert consumers to the presence of dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Thus, there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning or death.

The following models are being recalled:

  • The MPC322S model has sealed batteries with a lifespan of 10 years and a manufacture date code of 2017JUN09.
  • The MPC122S model is a hardwired alarm with a 10 year sealed battery fuse and a manufacture date code of 2017JUN02.

The brand name “Universal Security Instruments, Inc.” or “USI ELECTRIC” is printed on the front of the detectors above “Photoelectric Smoke & Fire & Carbon Monoxide Detector”.

The model number and date code are printed on the back of the alarms.

Walmart sold the alarms online from June 2017 to December 2019 for between $50 and $80.

According to the CPSC, those with the recalled alarms must contact Universal Security Instruments immediately for a free replacement alarm.

It added that consumers can and should continue to use the recalled alarms until they are able to install replacement alarms.

Universal Security Instruments said on its website that it had received two reports of units failing to raise carbon monoxide alarms by the set time limit.

However, no injuries were reported.
