TNT Red, White and Blue Ammo Smoke Fireworks Recall Issued Due to Injury Risk
As Independence Day week approaches, and Americans prepare to enjoy fireworks purchased in recent weeks, a recall has been issued for more than 36,000 “TNT Red, White and Blue Ammo Smoke” fireworks, which may unexpectedly explode after being lit.
The smoke fireworks recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 27, indicating that at least three burn injuries have been linked to the product, which is only supposed to release clouds of colored smoke.
Consumers are being urged to stop using the recalled fireworks immediately and to quarantine them until they can be returned to their store of purchase, to prevent further injuries.
