The fireworks “can explode unexpectedly after being lit, posing burn and injury hazards to consumers,” according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Affected fireworks cost about $5 and 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. The products were sold in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin at stores including Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Target and Walmart.

Anyone who purchased the fireworks should immediately stop using them and contact American Promotional Events for a full refund.
