WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of 610 beam smoke detectors due to a failure to alert consumers of a fire.

The recall involves beam smoke detectors with model number BEAM12245 and date codes 2111 through 3053.

The smoke detectors are ivory colored with black and measure 10 inches high, 7 and a half inches wide.

The smoke detectors were sold for use primarily in commercial buildings.

They were sold to alarm system, security equipment and electrical contractors and dealers from November 2012 through May 2013 for about $800.

The recall affects only smoke detectors that are powered by unacceptable power supplies. Those with acceptable power supplies, which are listed on the company website, do not need to be replaced, the consumer product watchdog group said.

Consumers can contact System Sensor of St. Charles, Ill., at 800-736-7672 for information.
