Safety Alert: Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

Watching the devastating fires that have been ravaging Southern California over the last month is a constant reminder of how vigilant we must be in our beautiful canyon. Fire safety is of the utmost importance to all of us.

That is why GOCHA wants to alert you to a massive recall on Kidde fire extinguishers. This recall affects almost 38 million fire extinguishers manufactured between 1973 and 2017. You can read about the recall here: https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2017/kidde-recalls-fire-extinguishers-with-plastic-handles-due-to-failure-to-discharge-and#.Wfr3FggcNkQ.

The fire extinguishers 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.

Kidde will replace any affected fire extinguisher at no cost. You can determine if your extinguishers are affected at this link: https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/Kidde284US/

Please check to see if you need to replace your fire extinguishers. If you ever need them, you want to know that they are working.

On behalf of GOCHA, we want to wish you a happy, healthy, and safe 2018!
