37 million fire extinguishers may not work - Kidde issues recall

Nearly 38 million fire extinguishers made in NC recalled	 	 	 			Kidde extinguisher recall

The two fire extinguishers recalled were the Kidde fire extinguishers with plastic handles and Kidde push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers. "If you have a nonrechargeable fire extinguisher in your home 12 years older than the date of manufacture, you should also replace it".

The recall involves 134 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between 1973 and 2017.

Emergency crews couldn't get the extinguisher to work. "In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard", the announcement said.

The recall affects between 37 and 38 million extinguishers in the USA made from 1973 to this past September.

Including the death, the CPSC says there have been 391 reports of extinguishers failing to work properly or of nozzles coming off, resulting in 16 injuries that included smoke inhalation and minor burns.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says on its website that it's aware of one death because of a problem with extinguishers made by Kidde. They were sold at every kind of store, from 20th century brick-and-mortar stalwarts such as Montgomery Ward and Sears to big boxes such as Walmart and The Home Depot to online retailers such as Amazon.com and ShopKidde.com.

The extinguishers were sold in white, silver and red and are either ABC- or BC-rated.

Kidde extinguishers are manufactured in Mebane, North Carolina. They were also sold for use in commercial trucks, recreational vehicles and boats. To see if your fire extinguisher is on the recall list, visit the CPSC here.
