Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

Recommended Posts

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.
