ffishman and jvonbank. I received my replacement kiddie extinguisher today. Instructions in the box said I should return the defective one. Did either of you bother to return yours? I was planning on keeping it in the garage as an extra "just in case" extinguisher. The recall states
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.
I have a working extinguisher on hand, I was just planning on using the defective one as a backup. Sort of a pain to box it back up and arrange a FedEx pickup for a hazardous shipment...you can not take it to a FedEx store to drop it off.
