"If you have a rechargeable fire extinguisher of any age-regardless if it's covered by the recall- and you are not sure if it is in good working order, you should replace it immediately", says Don Huber, director of product safety for Consumer Reports.
More than 40 million fire extinguishers - some on the market for more than four decades - are being recalled in the USA and Canada because they may not work in an emergency. If that happens, the extinguishers might not work during an emergency.
The recall affects between 37 and 38 million extinguishers in the US made from 1973 to this past September. Nozzles can also pop off with enough force to be a risky projectile.
The recalled extinguishers were sold at The Home Depot, Sears, Menards, Montgomery Ward, Amazon, ShopKidde.com and other hardware stores and websites nationwide.
In addition, Kidde admits in the recall notice, "There have been approximately 391 reports of failed or limited activation or nozzle detachment, including the fatality, approximately 16 injuries, including smoke inhalation and minor burns, and approximately 91 reports of property damage". Some commercial trucks, RVs and boats came with the fire extinguishers also.

There have been nearly 400 reports of malfunctions, including 16 injuries and a death.
The recall includes fire extinguisher models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015.
Owners should contact Kidde to ask for a free replacement and for instructions on how to return recalled models.
