KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A company that makes fire extinguishers says they may not work properly in an emergency.

Kidde is recalling more than 4 million of its disposable fire extinguishers because they may not fully discharge due to a faulty valve.

Even if repeatedly pressed, the extinguisher could do nothing.

Recalled models were sold at big box stores like Home Depot, Menards and Walmart and hardware stores across the country from August 2013 through last November.

A full list of extinguishers that should be replaced can be found on the consumer product safety commission’s website.
