According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, some 40 million Kidde fire extinguishers with plastic handles are being recalled as of November 2017. The extinguishers in question fail at the nozzle and/or fail to discharge. They were sold for use in homes, autos and boats. The extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver, and are either ABC- or BC-rated. The recall involves 134 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973, and August 15, 2017, including models that were previously recalled in 2009 and 2015. One death is attributed to the defective fire extinguishers.
