Kidde recall of fire extinguishers with plastic handles

November 3, 2017   (0 Comments)
Share |


Kidde, in conjunction with Health Canada, has announced a recall to replace certain Kidde fire



This 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.


This recall involves two styles of Kidde fire extinguishers: plastic handle fire extinguishers and

push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers. Metal handle/valve fire extinguishers are NOT included in this recall. The unaffected models include the Kidde Professional line, Badger branded extinguishers and the recently introduceddisposable metal handle/valve extinguishers.


If you receive consumer inquiries, please immediately direct them to contact Kidde at (855)

233-2882 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST Monday-Friday (excluding holidays), or between 9

a.m. and 3 p.m. during the weekend to determine whether their extinguishers are affected.
