The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall over fireworks sold at stores including Walmart, Target, Meijer, Kroger and Albertsons in Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio and Vermont due to safety concerns.

The TNT Red, White and Blue Smoke fireworks can explode unexpectedly after they’re lit, said CPSC officials. The fireworks were sold from May through June and are being recalled before the Fourth of July holiday.

According to Fox 59, there have been reports of burn injuries.

The items 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” appears on the product. The UPC number 027736036561 appear on the packaging.

The CPSC recommends that consumer should “immediately stop using the recalled fireworks and contact America Promotional Events for a full refund.”
