Some 40 million units, some dating back to the 70's.
Sounds like a no-questions-asked replacement of affected models.

Wow, that is a huge recall. I have two extinguishers like the one on the left. Bought them when I purchased the house 15 years ago. Suppose I should replace them. Wouldn't want one to fail in case of an actual emergency. Thanks for the heads-up on this one!

Sounds like the plastic valves are not aging gracefully and fracturing in the moment when they're needed...

Here is a direct link to the page to get a free replacement.
I just submitted my first of two. Takes about 3 minutes.

Our church has several Kidde extinguishers, but they are commercial models with metal handles. They have inspection tags indicating date the inspector was there.
