On November 2, 2017, Kidde released this information: 
"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."
 
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a new recall; rather this is just a reminder the recall exists. Kidde wants all of the affected extinguishers back and they will replace them at no change!
