On June 27, 2017 a recall was initiated by American Promotional Events for its TNT Red, White and Blue Smoke fireworks (manufactured in China) as these fireworks can explode unexpectedly after being lit, posing burn and injury hazards to consumers. Approximately 36,100 units have been recalled.
Per the recall, “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.”
American Promotional Events has already received three incident reports, resulting in three people suffering burn injuries.
