More than 40 million fire extinguishers in the U.S. and Canada have been recalled for a potential defect.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the Kidde extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge, and in some instances can fail to activate during a fire. The nozzle can also detach with enough force to pose a danger.
One death related to the defect was reported in 2014 after a Kidde extinguisher failed to work during a car fire following a crash.
The recall involves 134 models of Kidde extinguishers made between Jan. 1, 1983 and Aug. 15, 2017. The extinguishers are red, white and silver, and are either ABC or BC-rated.
