CPSC Announces Recall of 37 Million Kidde Fire Extinguishers

Massive recall for Kidde fire extinguishers

Kidde says there was a 2014 death involving a vehicle fire following a crash. In addition, the nozzles on some of the extinguishers can detach with enough force to potentially injure someone.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of about 37.8 million Kidde fire extinguishers.

More than 40 million fire extinguishers in the USA and Canada are being recalled because they might not work in an emergency.

Over 40-years of fire extinguishers, made in over 130 different models have been recalled.

Kiddie extinguishers are sold at home and hardware stores across the nation.

The extinguishers were sold in common places, such as Sears, Menards, Home Depot, and even Walmart.

So far, the CPSC has received almost 400 reports of cases in which the recalled fire extinguishers failed to work properly. "We urge property owners not to take any risk and get any recalled extinguishers replaced". Including the death, the CPSC says there have been 391 reports of extinguishers failing to work properly or of nozzles coming off, resulting in 16 injuries that included smoke inhalation and minor burns.

Certain models were recalled back in 2009, and again in 2015. Matthew McFarland, a firefighter with Unified Fire Authority, joined Brian Carlson Friday to show consumers how to use an extinguisher and how to tell when something.
