Fireworks Recall Lawyer

Three different fireworks manufacturers recalled dozens of products due to violating federal regulations that increase explosion and burn hazards.

(June 26, 2019) The 4th of July is right around the corner and fireworks safety is one of the most talked about issues during the holiday. Aside from properly extinguishing used fireworks and teaching children about maintaining a safe distance from them, the exploding light show is a favorite American past time. But what happens when the actual firework is compromised?

On June 26, three fireworks brands and subsequent products were recalled due to a violation of federal standards as they increase the chances of explosion and burn hazards. Here we will go over the main issue and list all the recalled fireworks products.

Federal Regulatory Violation

The three brands of fireworks (GS Fireworks, Grandma’s Fireworks, and Keystone) were found to be overloaded with pyrotechnics (which is a fancy way of saying ‘the art of creating a fireworks show’). The pyrotechnics in these fireworks intended for an audible effect violate federal regulatory standards set for this type of product. When this happens, they can result in a greater than expected explosion– oftentimes posing fire and burn hazards to those nearby.

This is similar to a recall from 2015, where Jake’s Fireworks Yo-Yo Sparklers were recalled due to causing serious burns in consumers, including children. The fireworks were found to have an inconsistent burn pattern due to cheap manufacturing processes in Chinese factories. This unpredictability of the sparkler to remain lit at a reasonable temperature and amount of time, led to explosions on the hands of many people.

Many people have filed fireworks burn lawsuits due to the products being unsafe. These types of suits seek accountability for releasing a potentially deadly firework to the public, causing property damage and injury.

GS FIREWORKS

There are 26 different consumer fireworks manufactured by GS Fireworks involved in this 260 unit recall. They were sold in Wyoming and Michigan from March 2018 to May 2018 between $10 and $125. The Michigan State Fire Marshall, along with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, investigated these fireworks and together initiated the recall. The brand name, product name, and item number can be found on the outside wrapping of the fireworks.
