By Sykesville Fire Department
November 7, 2017

On Nov. 2, 2017, Kidde announced a recall of almost 38 million fire extinguishers sold in the United States. They may not work during a fire emergency if they become clogged and require a lot of force to use. Also, the nozzle can come off with enough force to strike and hurt someone. Kidde recommends owners immediately replace these fire extinguishers.

The company is aware of one death when emergency responders couldn’t get the recalled extinguishers to work. There have been almost 400 reports of problems related to these Kidde fire extinguishers.

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