Fire Extinguisher May Be Clogged or Inoperable

In the event of a fire, if the fire extinguisher does not function properly, it can increase the risk of injury.

 

Summary

Prevost Cars, Inc. (Prevost) is recalling certain 2009-2018 H3-41, H3-45, H3-45 VIP, X3-45, X3-45 VIP, and X3-45 VIP Entertainer vehicles, equipped with certain Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button ‘Pindicator’ Fire Extinguishers. These extinguishers may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or excessive force may be needed to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable.
