A Michigan fireworks company is voluntarily recalling rockets distributed in Indiana that are overloaded with pyrotechnic composition, violating the federal regulatory standard.
This could result in a bigger explosion than you might expect, posing a risk of burns and harm to those nearby, according to the recall notice.
Super Lightning Rockets, distributed by Big Fireworks of Lansing, Mich., and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said consumers should stop using recalled products immediately.
It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product, according to a written statement from the commission.
The rockets were sold in packs of four and have item No. GCR3150 printed on the front of the package and on the rocket engine.
They were sold in Indiana, Florida, Pennsylvania and Michigan from November 2009 through June 2010 for about $20.
To get a full refund, contact Big Fireworks toll-free at 866-514-6225 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.bigfireworks.com.
