Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall
Kidde recalled 40.5 million fire extinguishers that were made since January 1, 1973. The recall was issued after a person died in a car fire in 2014 because emergency responders could not get it to work.
Kidde has received 391 reports of failed or limited activation of the fire extinguisher, or nozzle detachment, as well as 16 injuries (including smoke inhalation or minor burns) and 91 reports of property damage.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recall:
The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.”
The recall involves 134 models of Kidde plastic-handle fire extinguishers and Kidde push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers
