Jake’s Fireworks Inc., of Pittsburgh, Kan., has recalled about 651,500 of their sparklers. The sparklers burn faster and with a larger flame than normal and can burn down the stick towards users’ hands, posing a burn hazard. This recall involves Yo Yo Sparklers. The sparklers are 13 1/2 inches long, metallic gray in color on a wire stick. They were sold in multicolored packages containing four individual sparklers. The front of the packages had a logo with the U.S. flag and the words World Class Fireworks at the top, the words YOYO Sparklers and two pictures of sparklers burning at the bottom. Jake’s has received 12 reports of incidents of the sparklers burning rapidly down the stick towards users’ hands resulting in second degree and third degree burns to consumers hands.
The fireworks were sold at small fireworks stands and pop-up stores nationwide from April 2015 to July 2015 for about $3 per package. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sparklers, take them away from young children and contact Jake’s Fireworks to receive a full refund.
