What’s the Problem?
July 11, 2017 – The recalled TNT fireworks can explode prematurely when lit, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). Affected products were sold at Walmart and Kroger stores in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont, and Wisconsin. At least 3 people have suffered minor burns as a result of the defective fireworks, CPSC said.
“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.
