Kidde, in conjunction with Health Canada, has announced a recall to replace certain Kidde fire extinguishers. This recall was initiated because certain fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to activate, posing a risk of failure to discharge. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.
