Just days before the Fourth of July, manufacturer American Promotional Events (APE) has recalled its TNT Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks.

These particular fireworks are designed to give off smoke in patriotic colors when lit.

However, APE has received three reports of people suffering burns because the fireworks exploded unexpectedly.

Approximately 36,000 of these TNT Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks were sold for roughly $5 at Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Target, Wal-Mart and other stores in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin from May 2017 through June 2017.

This recall involves any package with the UPC number 027736036561.

If you have any of these in your fireworks stash, you can return them to APE for a full refund.
