Thousands of defective fireworks recalled in the US for burn injuries
Approximately 651,500 units of “YoYo Sparklers” in the U.S. are being recalled after several complaints were received of burn injuries from using the products, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on July 9.
According to reports, the recall affects the sparklers of Jake’s Fireworks that may burn too quickly as a result of a bigger flame. The recalling company and the CPSC are aware of at least 12 incidents of consumers suffering from second and third degree burn injuries to the hands. The sparklers are metallic gray and purchased in colorful packs that were made in China. People who might have the recalled sparklers are warned to immediately remove children’s access to them, and return the sparklers to Jake’s Fireworks to get their money back.
Sadly, many children in America suffer serious injuries from using defective products that are sold on the market. If this has happened to your child, you may pursue financial compensation from those responsible. Get in touch with the Lake Charles lawyers of N.
