Check on those fire extinguishers


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has ordered the recall of some Kidde brand fire extinguishers. The extinguishers can become “clogged or require excessive force to discharge, and can fail to activate during a fire emergency,” according to the commission’s website. The nozzle can also detach “with enough force to pose an impact hazard,” the site states.

Consumers are urged to contact Kidde at 855-217-0773 or go online at for more information.
