Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

Kidde has recalled two styles of fire extinguishers, including 142 different models of fire extinguishers that were manufactured as far back as 1973. The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.
