The recall involves two styles of Kidde fire extinguishers which feature plastic handle fire extinguishers and push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers.
In addition to the extinguishers not working, the nozzle can come off with enough force to kill you.
Note: This recall includes fire extinguisher models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015. The model number is printed on the fire extinguisher label. They were sold at every kind of store, from 20th century brick-and-mortar stalwarts such as Montgomery Ward and Sears to big boxes such as Walmart and The Home Depot to online retailers such as Amazon.com and ShopKidde.com. Consumers having one of the extinguishers should immediately contact Kidde to request a free replacement and for instructions on returning the recalled unit, as it may not work properly when needed during an emergency.
Rosko's family later received a settlement from Kidde, according to the company.

The recall includes 142 models with plastic handles and push button "pindicators" that can clog, resulting in a failure to discharge.

The extinguishers are manufactured by Kidde in Mebane, North Carolina.
