Kidde recalls 4.6 million fire extinguishers in U.S., Canada

I've got one of these recalled extinguishers in my Scamp.

For more information and a link to the website to see if yours is on the recall list: Kidde recalls 4.6 million fire extinguishers in U.S., Canada - CBS News

This is the actual list: Kidde Inmar-Recalls | Recall Summary

Spread the word, this is a safety issue!

Kidde recalls 4.6 million fire extinguishers in U.S., Canada

Thank you Donna.

Here is a link to the Canadian governments recall notice. http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall...43609r-eng.php

I found the model numbers to be different from the US site.

I have one of the affected models in my home but not in the date range. My older model was date stamped on the underside, as indicated on the label. Will check the trailers extinguisher tomorrow.

I only own extinguishers with metal valves. My local fire extinguisher shop won't sell or recharge those with the plastic valves. Fortunately I've only had to use one once, one of my 20 pounders on a chimney fire and it worked perfect.

Thanks Donna. My Casita extinguisher was on the list. Sadly, rather than giving consumers a certificate to redeem, Kidde is sending a new unit. Tough on fulltimers.
