#Recall: 37 million Kidde Fire Safety fire extinguishers. Fire extinguishers require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency. One death reported involving a car fire following a crash. Emergency responders could not get the recalled Kidde fire extinguishers to work. CONTACT - 855-271-0773 or www.kidde.com for a free replacement. Full recall announcement: http://bit.ly/2zbBvcs

The recall involves 134 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973 and August 15, 2017, including some models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and in February 2015. The extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver, and are either ABC- or BC-rated. The model number is printed on the fire extinguisher label. For units produced in 2007 and beyond, the date of manufacture is a 10-digit date code printed on the side of the cylinder, near the bottom. Digits five through nine represent the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for recalled models manufactured from January 2, 2012 through August 15, 2017 are 00212 through 22717. For units produced before 2007, a date code is not printed on the fire extinguisher.

Push-button fire extinguishers: The recall involves eight models of Kidde push-button fire extinguishers manufactured between August 11, 1995 and September 22, 2017. The no-gauge push-button extinguishers were sold in red and white, and with a red or black nozzle. These models were sold primarily for kitchen and personal watercraft applications
