Kidde fire extinguisher recall

This has been covered elsewhere but didn't see it on this forum, sorry if this is old news. Kidde has recalled certain fire extinguishers with plastic discharge levers. I had one covered by the recall, filled out the online form, and got a replacement within a couple weeks. Sent the old one back, prepaid, in the box the new one arrived in. It's a real easy process.

Arte,
i had one with the plastic discharge. i went to the site
filled out the info and 4 weeks later received a new one.
if you do this, when you receive the new one, carefully open
the box since they want you to return the old one in it.
