Recalls: Fire Extinguisher Woes Prompt RV Recalls

by RVCG Staff December 20, 2017

A whopping 37.8 million (in addition, 2.7 million in Canada and 6,730 in Mexico) of Kidde Plastic-Handle Fire Extinguishers model 210D have been recalled.

These extinguishers may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and render the product inoperable.
