Kidde Fire Safety has recalled 37.8 million fire extinguishers with plastic handles. Once a replacement extinguisher is received the old unit can be sent back to Kidde or can be taken to a local fire department for disposal.
The Owensboro Fire Department says is not equipped to handle and dispose of these extinguishers and cannot accept them.
They say if you have the extinguisher you need to work directly with Kiddie.
Those with the recalled extinguishers should call 1-855-271-0773. Those with recalled RV extinguishers should call 1-855-262-3540.
