Consumers should always use caution around fireworks, but proper handling may not be sufficient with certain products from North Central Industries.

The fireworks manufacturer is issuing a recall for its Great Grizzly brand California Candles. In the affected items, the rear plug of the candle can dislodge while lit, posing burn and fire hazards to the user if the user is holding the device. About 2,600 fireworks are included in the announcement.

The recalled candles are hand-held fireworks fountains that make crackling noises and display flowering tulips, blue pearls and gold showers. Each candle is approximately 2 inches in diameter and 30 inches long. The candles were sold in packs of three. The candles are labeled with the name Glow Beam, Dazzling Diamonds, or Touch of Sparkle. Each candle has the Great Grizzly logo on the label near the beginning of the candle name.

These fireworks were sold from May 2015 to June 2015 for $15 to $25. For a list of the retailers, see the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release.

North Central Industries has received six reports of a candle's rear plug dislodging while the firework was lit, resulting in burn injuries to the person holding the device. No reports of property damage have been received.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fireworks and contact North Central Industries for a full refund.
