2 styles of Kidde brand fire extinguisher have been recalled: plastic handle fire extinguishers and push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers.
A replacement program was initiated because certain fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to activate, posing a risk of failure to discharge. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard. Kidde is working with customers to obtain all recalled units and provide replacement options. Metal handle/valve fire extinguishers are NOT included in this recall.
If you have a recalled extinguisher, you can call Kidde at (855) 271-0773 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST Monday-Friday (excluding holidays), or between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. during the weekend.
