More than 40-million fire extinguishers in Canada and the U-S made by Kidde are being recalled because they can get clogged and not work in an emergency.
The recall covers 134 models of push-button and plastic-handle extinguishers in the U.S. and Canada made from 1973 to 15 August 2017.
It includes models that were previously recalled in March of 2009 and February of 2015, the CPSC said.
The recall involves 37.8m models in the US and another 2.7m in Canada.
The government says the extinguishers can become clogged and fail to spray when needed.
Also, the nozzle can come off with enough force to pose an injury hazard.
The U-S Consumer Product Safety Commission is aware of one death linked to the problem.
