Underwriters Laboratories warns of counterfeit fire extinguishers

There's a warning about counterfeit fire extinguishers being sold.

The bogus products are being sold with the "Underwriters Laboratories" seal of approval on them, but UL says they're fake and have not been certified.

UL says even though the fire extinguishers have the name "Amerex," "Badger," "Buckeye" and "Kidde" brands, the fire extinguishers were not made by those companies.

The fake extinguishers can also be marked by the name "Extintores Capelo" and "Certificacion UL."
