Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

I just received notice in the mail that Kidde is recalling some of it's plastic handle fire extinguishers: The recall involves 134 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973 and August 15, 2017, including models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015. The extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver, and are either ABC- or BC-rated.
I had 2 of the recalled extinguishers on my RV.
Here a link to Kidde website for information on the recall:

Go to the link and fill out the form...very easy. To fill out the form, you will need ALL the data on the fire extinguisher...model number, serial number and date of manufacture.

Or better yet...Spend a few extra dollars and get the extinguisher with the metal head. They are a lot better quality and will work every time and can easily be recharged and placed back in service after use. The ones with the plastic head are junk and will not always work when needed. We saw a lot of them come through our station before I retired as a Firefighter. We always advised everyone who had one of the plastic ones to get rid of it and buy the better metal head ones. The plastic head ones can not be recharged either.

I think these are similar to the ones that Mac McCoy (mac@macthefireguy.com) sells.
I saw him do a demo at a rally in Quartzite.
