    Howdy!,

    Earlier this month I learned there was a Recall on some Fire
    Extinguishers made by Kidde.

    Here are two URL's about this.

    I had to split the first URL in 3 sections.

    https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2018/Kidde-Recalls-Fire-Extinguishers- with-Plastic%20Handles-Due-to-Failure-to-Discharge-and-Nozzle- Detachment-One-Death-Reported

    http://www.kidde.com/home-safety/en/us/

    There is a Link on this Kidde page about the Recall.

    I called the Toll Free telephone number and told the person the
    Model Number, Serial Number and Date Code of each of my two
    Kidde Fire Extinguishers.

    They sent me replacement Fire Extinguishers with instructions
    about how to return the Recalled Fire Extinguisher(s) to them.


    ... Wise? Old? Me? Since when?

    I know this isn't amusing. Really, I know.

    But I can't help but think of the scene in "The IT Crowd" when the fire extinguisher catches fire.

    Good information, thank you. Mine don't appear to be affected but it
    is worth checking.

    Hey, I lied. I actually found the model number and called Kidde and
    both are recalled. Good job really, I had to use one when my wife
    tried to accidentally burn the kitchen. :)
