Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

7 posts in this topic

Go to the Kidde fire extinguisher web site and check out your extinguishers for recall. The ones that are effected have plastic handles or push buttons. Kidde is replacing them  for free. Some 38 million effected.  https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/Kidde284US/

Thanks for posting this!  Both of my units on the boat (bought last year) and a big one I have in the house are covered under the recall.

That is what I had too. Two on the boat and one at home.

Why are they being recalled?

Hazard:

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.

 

So basically they can either not put out the fire at all, and/or blow apart.
