Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) is recalling certain 2004-2017 FE84D, FE85D, FEC52, FEC72, FEC92, FGB72, FK61F and FM657 trucks. These trucks are equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button 'Pindicator' Fire Extinguishers that may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force 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.
