MILWAUKEE -- The City of Milwaukee is urging residents to check their home fire extinguishers after a recall was issued from a manufacturer.
Kidde has recalled the plastic handle and plastic push-button disposable fire extinguisher models.
The extinguishers become clogged or require excessive force to discharge, failing to activate during a fire emergency. There has been one death reported due to these issues, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
