Fire Extinguisher Recall

 

The following information was forwarded to me by one of our slip owners, Tom Leonzal. Tom also happens to be a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

URGENT USCG MARINE SAFETY ALERT

Walter Kidde has issued a recall of 134 different models of Kidde brand fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973 and August 15, 2017, including models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015. The extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver cylinder colors and are rated as either ABC or BC.  The extinguishers were sold nationwide online and at brick and mortar outlets. 

The hazards associated with the recalled fire extinguishers are that they 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.

All persons owning fire extinguishers are urged to read Coast Guard Marine Safety Alert 12-17 at:

For additional information on the recall and how to obtain a freereplacement.

All are also encouraged to check the fire extinguishers aboard your vessels, and in your vehicles and homes to determine whether they are subject to this recall.
