Winco Fireworks has issued a recall of about 14,000 black cat cone fountain fireworks because they pose a fire hazard.

When ignited, the device can burst and spread sparks and pyrotechnic materials outward instead of upward as intended, posing fire and burn hazards to bystanders.

This recall involves Black Cat Glitter fountain cones sold in packages of three. The products were sold at fireworks retailers nationwide from March 2016 through June 2016.

The cones have model number BC269 printed on the bottom of the packaging. The cone-shaped fireworks devices are approximately six inches tall and have the Black Cat logo on the packaging. The words Crackling Glitter, Colorful Glitter, or Gold Glitter are printed in black type on the front of the cone.

The company has received three reports of the devices spraying outward, though no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should return the recalled fireworks to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.

For more information, consumers may contact the company at (888) 697-2217.
