Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

I had bought a pair of extinguishers last year from Sam's Club. I just received the following email from them. Besides the fire extinguisher listed in the email, Kidde also has several other models that are being recalled, that you can find here at the link below. Just letting my fellow campers know in case they have one of the recalled models in your RV or home. It's not something you want to discover fails to work, when you need it.

The title of the link is misleading. It's a plastic valve, not the canister.

And yes, my two extinguishers matched the date range.

Kidde Recalls Disposable Plastic Fire Extinguishers Due to Failure to Discharge |

How to identify model:


CPSC Recall for Walter Kidde Disposable Fire Extinguishers

Dear Sam’s Club Member:

The Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Product Safety and Compliance team has been notified that Walter Kidde in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission has initiated a Recall of their Disposable Plastic Fire Extinguishers with Model Numbers FA110 or FX340SC. This recall is due to “a faulty valve component can cause the disposable fire extinguishers not to fully discharge when the lever is repeatedly pressed and released during a fire emergency, posing a risk of injury”.

Manufacture dates included in the recall are July 23, 2013 through October 15, 2014. A 10-digit date code is stamped on the side of the cylinder, near the bottom. Digits five through nine represent the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for recalled units manufactured in 2013 are XXXX 20413 X through XXXX 36513 X and 2014 are XXXX 00114 X through XXXX 28814 X.

Our records reflect you may have purchased this product.

Consumers should immediately contact Kidde for a replacement fire extinguisher. Members may contact Kidde toll-free at (855) 283-7991 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at and click on Safety Notice for more information.
