American Promotional Events recalls fireworks due to burn and injury hazards

Fireworks RecalledAmerican Promotional Events is recalling about 36,100 TNT Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks.

The fireworks can explode unexpectedly after being lit, posing burn and injury hazards to consumers.

The company has received three incident reports, resulting in three people suffering burn injuries. No property damage has been reported.

This recall involves TNT Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks. The recalled fireworks are pyrotechnic devices that make smoke when lit. They were sold in a bag containing three canisters: one red, one blue, and one white.

Each colored smoke firework is a cardboard cylinder tube that measures about 1 inch in diameter and 5 inches long. The TNT logo “Red, White & Blue Smoke” and UPC number 027736036561 appear on the packaging.

The recalled fireworks were sold at Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Target, Wal-Mart, and other retailers in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont, and Wisconsin from May 2017 through June 2017 about $5.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fireworks and contact America Promotional Events for a refund, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.
