The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled Balloon Time’s mini helium tanks due to injury hazards. The recall was instituted on Nov. 22, 2023.
According to the CPSC, the compressed helium inside the tank can escape and cause the plastic cap to be forcefully expelled from the canister, injuring bystanders.
Approximately 121,100 tanks are included in the recall.
The recall includes all Balloon Time mini helium tanks used to fill up 20 balloons, holding 5.8 cubic feet of helium and air mixture.
The CPSC advises consumers to stop using the recalled helium tanks immediately. Consumers should point the tank away from themselves and bystanders, and carefully remove the plastic safety seal and cap to release all helium in a well-ventilated area.
To destroy the product, consumers should write their name, “RECALLED” and destruction code (the number provided after the recalled product is registered) on the front of the tank with a non-erasable marker.
