The extinguishers with plastic handles and push buttons can clog and nozzles can pop off with enough force to hurt someone.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says there have been nearly 400 reports of faulty extinguishers responsible for 16 injuries and one death.

Kidde is replacing the recalled products for free.

Customers can call the company at (855) 271-0773.
