Yesterday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission posted information about a firework recall in Ohio, Illinois, Vermont, and Wisconsin. The fireworks affected are TNT brand Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks and they were sold at Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Target, Wal-Mart, and other retail vendors from May 2017 to June 2017 for roughly $5.
If you or your family has purchased these fireworks, do not light them. They can explode unexpectedly after being lit, posing a possible burn and injury hazard to users. Three users reported burn injuries to American Promotional Events, the manufacturer of these fireworks, before the recall was issued.
To receive a refund, you should contact America Promotional Events at 800-243-1189 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, via email. You will be granted a full refund for the product.
For more information, please see the product’s listing on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July, America!
