RECALL ALERT: fireworks


In this week's Recall Alert, a number of fireworks have been recalled because they're overloaded with explosives.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is worried the fireworks could explode more than expected and hurt someone.

In one case, an 8-year-old boy lost his hand.

The fireworks in question are sold by GS Fireworks, Grandma's Fireworks and Keystone Fireworks.

But unless you bought fireworks in Michigan, Indiana or Pennsylvania, you shouldn't have them.

That's where those fireworks were sold.

KAKE News has spoken with the Wichita Fire Department lately, and inspectors say they test the fireworks and make sure only approved ones are sold.

"Safety is the most important thing. That's why we inspect all the fireworks, make sure they pass the inspection, so they can have a fun and safe time," says Lt. James Ake, with the Wichita Fire Department.
