Kidde and Garrison Fire Extinguisher Recall in Canada: 2017 Nov

Yes, there is a fire extinguisher recall from Kidde and Garrison, but I found finding the list of affected models difficult to find. News agencies seem to relish reporting the news but do not provide the necessary links to look up your model.

US Government Kidde Recall notice: Includes something about “in ocnjunction with Canada”

Canadian government Recall notice for Kidde and Garrison fire extinguishers. Of course the health Canada site, referenced by most news agencies, has nothing about the recall, so this is a dead end.

This is a large recall that dates back many years, some to 1973. It seems a bad idea to buy a fire extinguisher that has a plastic handle.

Plastic Handle Fire Extinguishers, Push-Button Fire Extinguishers

Kidde Plastic Handle Fire Extinguishers
The recall involves 23 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973 and August 15, 2017, including some models that were previously recalled in March 2009

Push-button fire extinguishers: The recall involves six models of Kidde push-button fire extinguishers manufactured between August 11, 1995 and September 22, 2017.

    Yes, I filed a formal email report and after 3 months I have yet to hear from Kidde – I really don’t care about what they say they do to support customers, I have not even received a reply from my formal complaint. If I were to purchase another fire prevention device, I would not consider Kidde until they resolve their previous issues with me.

    Kidde doesn’t seem to care!!! I emailed as per the initial request and I haven’t heard anything from them in 3 months! Perhaps it’s a good thing that I didn’t need their products!!! They love taking my money but don’t respond to my emails about their deficient products!!!!!
