Recently, Takayasu and Tretyakov [Phys. Rev. Lett. 68, 3060 (1992)] studied branching annihilating random walks with n=1-5 offsprings. These models exhibit a continuous phase transition to an absorbing state. Steady-state simulations yielded an estimate for the order parameter critical exponent different from that of directed percolation. This result is quite surprising, as the universality class of directed percolation is known to be very robust. I have studied the critical behavior of the one-dimensional model with n=1 and 3 using time-dependent Monte Carlo simulations, and determined three critical exponents, all of which are in agreement with directed percolation.
