Kidde recently issued a recall on two styles of Kidde fire extinguishers: plastic handle fire extinguishers and plastic push-button fire extinguishers.
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.
This recall does not include Kidde Professional or Badger branded fire extinguishers. Units with metal handles/valve assemblies are not included in the recall.
