(Washington, DC) — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 38 million Kidde fire extinguishers. Spokesperson Ann Marie Buerkle says consumers will be given the newer model for free.
The malfunctions caused the extinguishers to become clogged and would fail to work in an emergency. Kidde has linked one death and 16 injuries to the faulty devices after almost 400 reported incidents. The Safety Commission says it is extremely important consumers check their website to ensure they can trust the household fire extinguisher.
