Fire Extinguisher Recall

Kidde Recalls Fire Extinguishers with Plastic Handles Due to Failure to Discharge

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 following extinguishers are affected by this recall:
