Walmart needs to check the polarity of the printed positive side of some Great Value 9V alkaline batteries.

The smaller circular (male) terminal is the positive, and the larger hexagonal or octagonal (female) terminal is the negative contact.

I have the items and I took pictures.
On the picture you can see the polarity is reversed (wrongly printed).
These need to be recalled before people install them wrongly in their smoke alarms and do so on.
