Last week, we featured a recall in Indiana of thousands fireworks after a boy, 12, lost his hand in a tragic accident. Today, we have more fireworks that have recalls according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The agency says the fireworks are “overloaded” and this “can result in a greater than expected explosion… and burn hazards to consumers.”
The fireworks in the recall were made in China and belong to different brands and go under dozens of product names. They are marketed by:
- Grandma’s Fireworks (25,000 units)
- Patriot Pyrotechnics/Bill’s Fireworks (11,000 units)
- Keystone G-Force Fireworks (1,660 units)
If you have these products, you can return them for a refund, but you are not to use them for your own safety and for that of those around you.
