The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for over 36,000 “Red, White, & Blue Smoke” fireworks manufactured by American Promotional Events and sold under the TNT Fireworks brand. These fireworks can explode unexpectedly after being lit and have already led to three reports of burns to consumers. These fireworks were sold in Illionois, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin – so hopefully our area will be spared.
