Fire extinguishers are the last thing that should ever be recalled, but I guess it happens.

Kidde industries have announced a recall of more than 40 million fire extinguishers, some dating as far back as January 1973 before most of you were born.

From Kidde:

"The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency.

In addition, the nozzle can detach with enough force to pose an impact hazard."

This list of recalled units is very extensive, and it includes models that were already covered in a previous recall.
