Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

On November 2, Kidde issued a recall of more than 40 million fire extinguishers. These extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and may fail to activate in a fire emergency. In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard. Kistler O'Brien Fire Protection has not and does not sell this brand of fire extinguisher. For optimal fire safety, we recommend purchasing a commercial-grade fire extinguisher. For information on the fire extinguishers we offer, please call 1-800-322-9060.
