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.
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
and in February 2015.
Push-button fire extinguishers: The recall involves six models of Kidde push-button fire extinguishers manufactured between August 11, 1995 and September 22, 2017.
