Fire extinguisher recall: Kidde recalls 40 million fire extinguishers

Posted by John Hadden | Nov 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

Kidde, manufacturer of one of the best-selling brands of fire extinguishers sold in the US, has recalled 40 million fire extinguishers made from 1973 to 2017. According to Consumer Reports, at least one death has been reported, along with "16 injuries, 91 reports of property damage, and 391 reports of the extinguishers either not working at all or not working properly." The recalled extinguishers may become clogged and fail to function properly, and the nozzle may detach from the extinguisher and become a dangerous projectile.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has additional information on the recall, including contact information for replacement of recalled fire extinguishers. The recalled extinguishers were sold at many retailers, including Home Depot, Sears, and Wal-Mart, and were sometimes sold under other brand names.

"Working with John was my first experience with the legal system. John explained everything thoroughly to me and helped me weigh the pros and cons of each potential decision. He was readily available whenever I had a question or a concern about my case. I would highly recommend John to anyone in need of legal representation. He is professional yet still very down to earth.”
