Michigan Involved in “Overloaded” Fireworks Recall
The 4th of July is always better when there's fireworks. But nobody needs to be messing with "overloaded" fireworks - stuff that's a lot more powerful than you expected. But that's what we're facing with some fireworks you may have already purchased and been saving for this year's 4th of July.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall on overloaded fireworks sold in Michigan (as well as Pennsylvania and Indiana) According to the article, "The recalled fireworks are overloaded with products intended to make a booming sound, which could result in a greater than expected explosion that poses hazards to users, according to the safety commission."
The fireworks involved were sold by Patriot Pyrotechnics, located in Sheridan, Michigan, GS Fireworks, located in Wyoming, Michigan and Grandma’s Fireworks in Indiana. The fireworks in question were sold in 2017 and 2018. So you may still have them as part of your fireworks stash.
