I just saw on the news that Kiddie is recalling fire extinguishers and replacing them for free. Some of them date back to the early 70's! It appears extinguishers supplied with boats and jet skis are also in the recall.

Here are some links to more info:

https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2017/kidde ... charge-and" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/Kidde284US/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I have at least three extinguishers to see if they are affected by this recall.

Looks like I have two that are recalled.

The three I have on my boats are kinda old.... the gauges say they are ok but who knows... and I don't want to find out the hard way in an emergency. I think I'm going to look into replacing them with higher quality units.

One of my replacement extinguishers arrived today. Looks like a much nicer marine unit with metal handles, valve, and a blue anodized nozzle.
