- On Wednesday, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled about 180,000 battery-powered smoke and fire alarms.

The defective alarms were produced by Universal Security Instruments and have the words "Universal" and "Smoke & Fire Alarm" on the front cover of the alarm.

Consumers are asked to immediately inspect their smoke alarms to determine if it will activate properly. The alarms are white and five-and-a-half inches in diameter. The model number and date can be found on the back of the alarm. Columbus fire officials say there have been reports that some of those devices may have been installed without proper activation and testing.
