Fire Extinguisher Recall Alert
Popular fire extinguisher brand company Kidde has issued a fire extinguisher recall alert on their fire extinguisher with plastic handles. This alert has been issued as some models (specified in the article linked to) can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and thus fail to activate during a fire emergency. If you haven't already done so, check your Kidde fire extinguisher(s) to see if they are impacted by this recall alert.
To check and see if your fire extinguisher is affected by this recall, please see the following article on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission website:
