Unstable Firework Recalled by Manufacturer Due to Injury Risk
Fireworks Over America is issuing a recall for faulty fireworks that pose a threat to consumers.
The firework manufacturer is voluntarily recalling its Space Monkey model. The lit firework can tip over and fire shells at bystanders, posing burn, fire and impact hazards to those nearby. The firm is including about 36,500 fireworks in the recall.
Space Monkey is sold individually and by the case. The product is sold in a black package that bears the words Space Monkey, Warning, Shoots Flaming Balls, and Carefully read other cautions on the back panel. Recalled fireworks have product code FOA 2936 printed on the lower right hand corner of the back panel and factory number 36F285-252-14 printed on the front of the case near the product name.
This product could be purchased at retail fireworks stores and retail stands from November 2014 to August 2015 for about $15 each.
