In addition, "there have been approximately 391 reports of failed or limited activation or nozzle detachment, including the fatality, approximately 16 injuries, including smoke inhalation and minor burns, and approximately 91 reports of property damage", the release reads.

Almost 38 million Kiddie fire extinguishers with plastic handles are being recalled because they may not work in emergencies or the nozzles can detach, and one death has already been reported because of it. Nozzles can also pop off with enough force to be a risky projectile.

You can call Kidde at 855-271-0773 or visit the Kidde website, where you can fill out a form to get a new unit.

The recall involves more than 140 different devices produced between 1973 and this past September.

It includes models that were previously recalled in March of 2009 and February of 2015.

"The fire extinguishers can become clogged or require excessive force to discharge and can fail to activate during a fire emergency", the CPSC said in a recall advisory.

First President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and then his former campaign foreign policy advisor . The investigation into Podesta and his firm initially started when Manafort's finances were examined by Mueller's unit.

The extinguishers are sold online and at The Home Depot, Walmart, Sears and other stores. His family received a settlement from Kidde.

The recall applies to some Kidde models manufactured during the last 43 years.

No proof of purchase is required, but consumers will need to supply serial numbers and other identifying information.

Ann Marie Buerkle, acting chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, told CNN the agency is using print and radio ads and social media to spread the word about the recall.

Kidde will replace defective extinguishers for free with new ones made with metal parts.
