Recall: Kidde and Badger CO2 10lb, 15lb, and 20lb Fire Extinguishers

Kidde and Badger CO2 10lb., 15lb., and 20lb. Extinguishers:

Kidde Canada is issuing a stop sale and product examination request on its line of CO2 10lb., 15lb., and 20lb. extinguishers manufactured from January 1, 2009 through June 23, 2019 which are branded “Kidde” or “Badger” due to a potential safety issue. The potentially affected models are:

Kidde and Badger CO2 Extinguisher Models Recalled

Reason: All nozzle tips on CO2 model hose assemblies should contain four (4) unobstructed discharge holes to properly expel extinguishing agent. Kidde has learned that some CO2 discharge nozzle tips may have been manufactured without the proper number of nozzle holes or may contain obstructed/blocked discharge holes which may affect operational discharge performance.

For all existing inventory that has not been placed into service:
Effective immediately, Kidde requests that you segregate, hold and stop sale of all models and hose assembly spare parts listed in the above table you may have in stock with carton box labels reflecting a packaging date prior to June 23, 2019, to confirm the discharge nozzle tips have all 4 unobstructed discharge holes before selling them or placing them into service.
CO2 extinguishers with a carton box label date of June 23, 2019, or after have undergone an internal inspection at the factory and do not require additional examination – these fire extinguishers may be sold without any further action.
