Kidde Recalls 40 Million Fire Extinguishers

Kidde Extinguisher Recall

This is not related to any products that Dynaxa LLC provides nor does it probably apply to any of the fire extinguishers at your company, but it is safety related and safety begins at home.  This is being provided as a public service announcement.  40 million home fire extinguishers have been recalled by Kidde and probably affect many that you all have at home.  They are the largest producer and they manufacture under their name and private label for others.  I had some in my family and they have been replaced.  Kidde will replace them at no charge and provide all of the packaging to return the affected units at no cost to the owner.

Please feel free to distribute to anyone who may benefit.

November 2, 2017 – In conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kidde announced a recall to replace certain Kidde fire extinguishers. The 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. The product recall involves two styles of Kidde disposable fire extinguishers: plastic handle fire extinguishers and plastic push-button fire extinguishers.
