    And they'll replace many of their fire extinguishers as far back as the 1990s. When you enter your model# on their website, they'll let you know if it's one of the recalled models.
    They send out the new one with a return shipping label for the old one.

    Yup, I had a model number FF210D-1.  Kidde is mailing me a new extinguisher.  Here's a link to the identification info.

    Our [email protected] extinguisher is First Alert, but I did have one in the truck recalled...good news is they’ll replace it, bad news is they’re way backlogged so don’t hold your breath.

    Thanks for posting this, and glad I check the forum. 
    We have now received our replacement, as well as another for the one we had in our kitchen.  Still wondering why this was a only a B-C type and not an A-B-C.

    My 2018 [email protected] came with an extiguisher that was on the recall list.  I sent for the replacement and they sent me one that was twice the size of the one that came in my [email protected] The one recalled was a 2lb. ext., and the one they sent to replace it is a 6lb. ext, and twice the size!   It will not fit...when I called they said that that's all that they could do and that they had sent me one better than the one I had.  As you know there is very limited space, so in my opinion that is not better.  So I guess I will have to buy a new one from somewhere else.  The Kidde company was very unhelpful! Did they replace anyone else's with the correct size?

    Just a heads up. When you return the recalled fire extinguisher to Kidde (using the box that the replacement comes in), you cannot drop it off at a Fedex location. You must call the number listed and have it picked up by a driver. If you call the Fedex number and they tell you otherwise, they are wrong.  :s

    Check if you have a Fedex Distribution Center in your area.  The smaller Fedex storefronts are not equipped or qualified to handle and store the extinquishers (as Marceline points out).  I have a Distribution Center nearby and they took the (properly labeled and packed) box with no problems.

    Wow. I took my six extinguishers to the fedex shipping office (Kinko's), and they told me I'd have to take them home to order a pick up! 
    I guess that office wasn't set up to deal with them.

    My replacement showed up 2 weeks ago, along with my house kitchen extinguisher, which was in the recall as Well!

    @ChanW I recently dealt with this too. In your box with the new extinguisher, there should have been instructions and a label to be used for the return. You have to call Fed Ex and actually talk to someone. (Trying to get to a person is the worst part of the whole project). Give them the label/tracking number and they will schedule a pick up from your house.
