Wyoming fireworks recalled due to greater than expected explosion risk

KUSA - If you bought fireworks in Wyoming this summer and still haven't detonated them, a new recall could affect you. 

Wholesale Fireworks is recalling three types of fireworks because they violate federal regulatory standards. 

Toxic artillery rockets, Boom Box aerial shells and Detonator firecrackers are overloaded with pyrotechnics which can result in a greater-than-expected explosion, posing burn and explosion hazards to consumers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The fireworks were sold at Wholesale Fireworks stores in Wyoming from June 2017 to August 2017 for between $13 and $90.

No injuries have been reported, but consumers should stop using the fireworks and contact Wholesale Fireworks of Laramie, Wyoming for a full refund.

You can learn more about this recall from CSPS.gov.
