More than 40 million fire extinguishers in the USA and Canada are being recalled because they might not work in an emergency. The death, which occurred in 2014, happened when emergency responders tried to put out a auto fire with a Kidde fire extinguisher, but could not get the extinguisher to work, CPSC said.
One death has been linked to problems with the extinguishers made by Kidde, according to a notice Thursday from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. In total, 40.5 million fire extinguishers manufactured from 1973 to 2017 are being recalled.
The government says the extinguishers can become clogged and fail to spray when needed.

The 1.2 million plastic-handle extinguishers were sold between January 1, 1973, and Aug 15, 2017, while the push-button type were sold from August 11, 1995, to September 22, 2017.
Another known malfunction is the nozzle of certain extinguishers could break or detach, causing it to be thrown with enough force to create an impact.
The expanded recall involves fire extinguishers not included in previous recalls in March 2009 and February 2015. McFarland says to have one on every floor of your home, and definitely one in the kitchen. They also report approximately 91 reports of property damage. They can be found on the shelves of Walmart, Home Depot and can even be purchased online on Amazon.
