Kidde Fire Extinguishers Recalled

Kidde Fire Extinguishers Recalled

"In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard", Kidde said in a press release.

2016 the Charles City Rotary Club distributed First Alert fire extinguishers, which are NOT a part of the recall.

The recalled units were sold at Menards, Montgomery Ward, Sears, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com, ShopKidde.com and other online retailers for between $12 and $50; one model sold for roughly $200.

There have been 391 reports of failed activation, including one report of a fatality, 16 injuries including smoke inhalation and burns, as well as 91 reports of property damage.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an alert regarding the fire safety manufacturers fire extinguishers, which can clog and fail to deploy, according to the agency. In a 2014 flaming vehicle crash, the company admits in the recall notice, "Emergency responders could not get the recalled Kidde fire extinguishers to work". The model numbers are printed on the body of the fire extinguisher (see photos above and below).




This comes three years after a auto fire that turned fatal after a Kidde fire extinguisher failed to work. You can also go to www.kidde.com and click on "Product Safety Recall" for more information.

Kidde will replace all of the recalled extinguishers for free; proof of purchase is not required. Those fire extinguishers have a metal handle and are safe to use.

The Kidde Company is recalling 38-million of their devices because they might not work in an emergency.

It includes models that were previously recalled in March of 2009 and February of 2015, the CPSC said.
