Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recalls

Kidde, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Protect Safety Commission (CPSC), has announced a recall to replace certain Kidde fire extinguishers.

This replacement program was initiated because certain fire extinguishers can become clogged or require extensive 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.

If you have questions please contact Kidde at (855) 271-0773 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 your extinguishers are affected. You may also visit
