RECALL

November 7th

On Nov. 2, 2017 Kidde fire extinguishers has recalled some 40 million plastic handle and push-button pindicator fire extinguishers dates 1973 and earlier. The fire extinguishers are being recalled because they can become clogged, require more force than normal, can fail to activate, and the nozzle can detach possing an impact hazard. 134 models have been recalled between manufactured dates of Jan 1, 1973 to Aug 15, 2017. This recall even includes models that were recalled back in March of 2009 and Feb 2015.

Kidde states "For units produced in 2007 and beyond, the date of manufacture is a 10-digit date code printed on the side of the cylinder, near the bottom. Digits five through nine represent the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for recalled models manufactured from January 2, 2012 through August 15, 2017 are 00212 through 22717. For units produced before 2007, a date code is not printed on the fire extinguisher."

Consumers should immediately contact Kidde to request a free replacement fire extinguisher and for instructions on returning the recalled unit, as it may not work properly in a fire emergency.

More information as well as model numbers can be found on the following page.
