CU comments to CPSC on proposed smoke & carbon monoxide detector survey

Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports (CR), welcomes the opportunity to submit comments to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in reference to the proposed survey regarding smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
