    I have a few fire extinguishers in my home. I'm sure that most of us that reload have one in your work area. Kidde has announced a recall on quite a few models ~ you can check to see if your's is one of the units affected at www.kidde.com.

    Let's be safe out there :fire:

    None of mine were on the list.

    I was hoping to get free replacements for the two that recently passed into the "red zone".

    UPDATE 12/7/2017
    Replacement fire extinguisher was delivered today by FedEx from Kidde. Instructions were inside to package the old affected extinguisher in the cardboard box. Shipping label for return postage was inside. NOTE: Don't discard the box or throw away the styrofoam peanuts, as it's needed for the return shipping. IMO, they handled the recall very professionally.
    Merry Christmas to all :D

    The one extinguisher I have was on the list. Thanks to the OP for posting this - there's essentially no chance I would have learned of the recall without this thread.

    My old one from home goes back tomorrow. I am still waiting to hear about shipping for the 9 from church.

    Kidde is "celebrating" its 100th anniversary this year. It looks like they are a subsidiary of UTC Fire & Security Corporation, and neither is publicly traded. Somebody is really taking it on the chin.
