Among the 48 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Navistar, Inc. (“Navistar”) has recalled an estimated 10,195 model year 2000-2001 International 4700, 2000-2002 4900, 2001-2003 8100 (TranStar) and 9100I, 2002-2003, 2005, 2007-2009, 2012-2014 and 2016-2018 DuraStar, 2012 and 2014-2017 ProStar, 2014-2015 TerraStar, and 2018 LT trucks. These vehicles are equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button ‘Pindicator’ Fire Extinguishers that may become clogged, preventing the Extinguisher from discharging as expected or excessive force may be needed to activate the extinguisher.

Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle of the recalled Fire Extinguishers may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable. For a full list of the affected fire extinguisher models visit: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RMISC-17E062-5427.pdf

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a fire, if the Fire Extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury.

Navistar will notify owners, instructing them to notify Kidde for a replacement Fire Extinguisher, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 9, 2018. Owners may contact Navistar customer service at 1-331-332-1590, or contact Kidde customer service toll-free at 1-855-262-3540, or online at http://www.kidde.com and click on “Product Safety Recall” for more information.
