An Alabama company is recalling more than 22,000 reloadable fireworks that could cause injuries when detonated a second time.
"TNT" Reloadable Tube Fireworks, distributed by American Promotional Events of Florence, have defective bases that can break during launch, sending sparks flying erratically. The Consumer Products Safety Commission made the announcement Wednesday.
The agency says there have been two reports of the base breaking. NO injuries were reported.
The recalled fireworks are approximately eleven inches long and one-and-a-quarter inches in diameter and came in packs of six shells with fuses. The devices consist of a black base with a multicolored PVC tube and are labeled Model Number CP983, Item Number 460070, TNT and "Number One Selling Brand."
The fireworks were sold in June and July and were made in China.
Consumers are urged to return the fireworks to the place of purchase for a refund or contact the company for information at 1-800-243-1189.
