Kidde Safety Europe has recalled fire extinguishers with plastic handles due to possible failure to discharge and nozzle detachment.
The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.
Please identify as to whether you have an affected extinguisher by using the images & product codes below and register your product for replacement if necessary. Kidde Safety Europe Ltd will arrange for a compliant replacement fire extinguisher to be supplied to you which meets the British safety standard. Alternatively, contact Kidde directly on 0-800-088-5513 and we will arrange to issue you with a replacement fire extinguisher.
The potentially affected fire extinguishers all have plastic handles. No extinguishers with metal handles are affected. If the extinguisher has a plastic handle and NO pressure gauge, then it is also affected. Extinguishers with plastic handles and a pressure gauge are affected if the part number is 440162 (model numbers: H110G, FA110G, FC110, FS110, M110G, M110GM).
