Kidde says there was a 2014 death involving a vehicle fire following a crash.

Almost 400 people have reported a fault with the product causing the recall.

The extinguishers, sold by Kidde, can become clogged or "require excessive force to discharge", and fail to work during a fire emergency, the CPSC said.

Certain models of extinguishers also come equipped inside commercial trucks, RVs, and personal watercraft like a boat of jet ski. The death, which occurred in 2014, happened when emergency responders tried to put out a auto fire with a Kidde fire extinguisher, but could not get the extinguisher to work, CPSC said. "I urge all Missourians to check all their fire extinguishers so they can be confident they will work when needed". The model number is printed on the fire extinguisher label.
