A recall has been issued for fireworks after three people reported burn injuries, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Tuesday.

TNT Red, White and Blue Smoke fireworks let out colored smoke, but, in some cases, unexpected explosions have happened after the products are lit, CPSC reports.

"The Blue Ammo Smoke effect could rapidly dispel from the bottom of the tube in an explosive manner posing a burn hazard," according to the manufacturer recall notice. 

The products were sold in May and June of 2017 at Kroger, Meijer, Walmart and Target stores in Ohio, Vermont, Wisconsin and Illinois.

The recalled fireworks cost about $5 and are manufactured by American Promotional Events in China.

From the CPSC:

"The recalled fireworks are pyrotechnic devices that make smoke when lit. They were sold in a bag containing three canisters: one red, one blue and one white. Each colored smoke firework is a cardboard cylinder tube that measures about 1 inch in diameter and 5 inches long. The TNT logo, “Red, White & Blue Smoke” and UPC number 027736036561 appear on the packaging."

 Anyone who has purchased TNT Red, White and Blue Smoke fireworks can contact American Promotional Events at 800-243-1189 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday; email at or online at
