Fire extinguisher manufacturer Kidde recalled an estimated 4.7 million plastic disposable fire extinguishers in the United States and Canada due to a faulty valve component that may not discharge.

A notice posted by the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday, Feb. 12, stated that the faulty valve component can cause 31 models of the disposable fire extinguisher not to fully discharge when the lever is repeatedly pressed and released during a fire emergency, posing an injury risk.

Kidde received 11 reports of the recalled fire extinguishers failing to discharge as expected. No injuries were reported.

The recalled extinguishers are red, white or silver and are either ABC- or BC-rated. Manufacture dates included in the recall are July 23, 2013, through Oct. 15, 2014.

Consumers should immediately contact Kidde for a replacement fire extinguisher by calling 855-283-7991 or by visiting www.kidde.com and clicking on Safety Notice for more information.
