Massive fire extinguisher recall; more than 37.8 million devices recalled

Nearly 38 million fire extinguishers made in NC recalled	 	 	 			Kidde extinguisher recall

If you have a fire extinguisher in your home, you need to check it.

The U.S. government is recalling nearly 40 million fire extinguishers, for fear that the products may not work in an emergency.

Kidde is recalling two styles Plastic handle and plastic push-button fire extinguishers. After Rosko's auto struck a tree and burst into flames, emergency responders first tried to use fire extinguishers to put out the fire but they didn't work, according to the CPSC.

Someone spending time trying to get a defective extinguisher to work would be much better off escaping from the fire. The nozzle can also detach with enough force to pose an injury.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled 37.8 million fire extinguishers because they might not work in an emergency.

This includes models previously recalled in 2009 and 2015.
