Kidde fire extinguisher company has issued a recall on many of their
extinguishers that have a plastic handle (or button). The units with
metal handles are not on recall. Apparently some of the plastic handled
units jam, break or malfunction when they are trying to be used to put
out a fire rendering them useless.

Kidde will replace the recalled unit at no charge. If you have any Kidde fire
extinguishers, you may want to check them out to see if they are on the
recall list. Remember to check the units in your homes, shops, and vehicles also

Here is the Kidde recall notice:
