Actually, they DO MAKE chargers for recharging primary use ALKALINES. I own three of such chargers. If they are run TOO LOW before charging, they might LEAK. Many of the recharged cells are JUST FINE.

are not a rechargeable cell. (there was one brand on the market that claimed to be rechargeable - after a fashion - but they never did well - can't remember the brand offhand.

Rayovac made a rechargable alkaline. I tried them in FRS walkie talkies, but they promptly gave the low battery chirp. High capacity NiMH would have worked better in walkie talkies.
I've recently gotten some Powergenix rechargable batteries. Of course, being higher voltage, they have their own type of charger. Been using them in my digital camera, where they work very successfully.
