RECALL ALERT: Kidde Recalls Nearly 38 Million Fire Extinguishers

By Assistant Chief Christopher Harris
November 21, 2017

Kidde announced a recall of almost 38 million fire extinguishers sold in the United States on Nov. 2, 2017. The issue is that they may not work during an emergency if they become clogged and may require excessive force to use. Another issue is that the nozzle can come off with enough force to strike and injure someone. Kidde recommends owners immediately replace these fire extinguishers.

There have been almost 400 reports of problems related to the Kidde fire extinguishers listed in the recall.

Check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website for information on specific model numbers involved with the current recall. Kidde will replace the recalled extinguishers for free.
