Kidde Recalls Plastic Handle and Push-Button Fire Extinguishers

Kidde has just issued a product safety recall involving two of their disposable fire extinguishers:

  • Plastic handle fire extinguishers
  • Plastic push-button fire extinguishers

Kidde says it estimates that this recall affects nearly 37.8 million fire extinguishers in the United States, which 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.
