WASHINGTON, D.C. - Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall Summary

Name of Product: Canister shell fireworks kits

Hazard: The shell can blow up in the tube during firing, posing impact and burn hazards to the user and bystanders.

Remedy: Refund

Consumer Contact: Winco toll-free at (888) 697-2217 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.wincofireworks.com then click on the News tab at the top of the page, then click on Contraband 24 Artillery Recall.

Recall Details

Units: About 4,500 kits

Description: This recall involves Contraband 24 fireworks kits with canister shells and firing tubes that are designed to be used multiple times. Shells are put into each tube one by one and lit. The shells are about 1 ¼ inches in diameter. The tubes in some kits may be too narrow and not allow the shell to drop to the bottom of the tube when loaded. When fired, the shell can blow a hole in the tube. Each kit contains 24 60-gram shells with fuses attached and four fiberglass firing tubes with wooden bases. The kit came in a brown cardboard box about 28 inches tall, 9 inches wide and about 5 inches deep. The front of the box has the words “Contraband 24,” “24 Cannister Shells,” “Maximum Powder Load” printed in black and red. The front also has a warning stating the product should only be used under close adult supervision and outdoors. Model number JP-933 is printed on the left front of the box above the warning. The back of the box has color photos and descriptions the effect each shell should create.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received two reports of the firing tubes being too narrow, including one report of a shell blowing up in a tube and causing minor burns and cuts to the legs of a store employee.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fireworks kits and return them to the place of purchase to receive a full refund.

Sold at: Pyro City and other fireworks retailers from February 2014 to June 2014 for about $80.

Importer: Winco Fireworks International LLC, of Prairie Village, Kan.

Manufactured in: China
