Thousands of fireworks recalled in the U.S.
A Missouri-based company issued a recall on July 1 covering 14,000 units of fireworks, an article of cpsc.gov stated. The fireworks can potentially cause harm to nearby spectators.
The “Black Cat Cone Fountains” produced by Winco Fireworks may rupture and scatter pyrotechnic particles outward rather than upward as intended. Fireworks spectators and bystanders are at a high risk of sustaining burn injuries if the fountains malfunction. Although no one sustained injuries before the recalled was issued, Winco received three consumer complaints of malfunctioning fireworks. Consumers were advised not to ignite the fountains and to return them to Winco to get a refund or a product exchange.
