What’s the problem?
July 11, 2017 – The recalled fireworks were sold at Walmart and Kroger stores in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont, and Wisconsin, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). The devices emit colorful smoke and are not supposed to explode.
CPSC said at least three people suffered minor burns from the unintended fireworks explosions.
“The 30 days around the Fourth of July is when we see the most injuries occur,” said Ann Marie Buerkle, acting chairwoman of the CPSC.
TNT spokeswoman Sherri Simmons encouraged consumers who purchased the fireworks to report the product to American Promotional Events and return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
“We want people to be safe and know they’re buying a good product,” Simmons said.
