KIDDE - Fire Extinguisher Recall

Thanks to Crowleys for this important notice - this is a reprint of pieces of their notice sent to boaters.

The Kidde corporation has recalled 40 million fire extinguishers.  Kidde is the most common marine fire extinguisher sold in the United States. There is a good chance that you have one or more of these units on your boat.  This recall is for plastic top Kidde fire extinguishers produced between the dates of January 1, 1973 and October 25, 2015.  The nozzles can clog and fail to activate and have also detached with enough force to cause a hazard.

Kidde is providing free replacements with metal tops.  We urge you to check your fire extinguishers and see if they are covered by the recall.  The CPSC recall website shows you how to easily identify the affected fire extinguishers. Go to then Kidde website, fill out a simple form and Kidde will ship replacements directly to you.  Included with the replacements will be instructions on what to do with your old fire extinguishers. You will need to have the model number, date code and serial number to complete the form.
