One death has been reported in connection with the faulty fire extinguishers, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports.

More than 40 million fire extinguishers - some on the market for more than four decades - are being recalled in the United States and Canada because they may not work in an emergency.

To claim a replacement, check the brand name and model number of your fire extinguisher against the CPSC recall notice.

Syrian opposition rejects Russia-sponsored congress
Two separate series of peace talks are being conducted in an attempt to end the six-year civil war in Syria . Russian President Vladimir Putin first mentioned the possibility of such a congress earlier this month.

The recall affects between 37 and 38 million extinguishers in the US made from 1973 to this past September. The nozzle can also detach with enough force to pose an injury.

The recalled units were sold at Menards, Montgomery Ward, Sears, The Home Depot, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com, ShopKidde.com and other online retailers for between $12 and $50; one model sold for roughly $200.

The push-button pindicator fire extinguishers were sold in red and white, and with a red or black nozzle, primarily for kitchen and personal watercraft applications.
