Kiddie Fire Extinguisher Recall
Important Recall Notice
November 2, 2017
Dear Valued Fire Service Professional:
Kidde, in conjunction with Health Canada, has announced a recall to replace certain Kidde fire
extinguishers. A copy of the press release and the safety notice are enclosed. Kidde has sent
copies to our retail customers with instructions to post a copy of the safety bulletin in locations
that sold these extinguishers.
We value our relationship with the Council of Canadian Fire Marshals and Fire Commissioners
and Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs and would appreciate you spreading the word about
this important safety recall in your fire safety efforts.
This replacement program was initiated because certain fire extinguishers can become clogged
or require excessive force to activate, posing a risk of failure to discharge. In addition, the
nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard.
As the safety of our customers is our priority, we are working with customers to obtain all
recalled units and provide replacement options.
