TNT Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks are under recall after reports surfaced of multiple unintended explosions when some of the devices were lit.

With the Fourth of July just days away, the fireworks maker has issued a voluntary recall of 36,100 units in four states following the unintended explosion reports. Three people have reported suffering minor burns, according to CNN.

The fireworks in question were being sold in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont, and Wisconsin.

“The recalled fireworks are pyrotechnic devices that make smoke when lit. They were sold in a bag containing three canisters: one red, one blue and one white,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said in a news release on Tuesday, according to ABC News. “Each colored smoke firework is a cardboard cylinder tube that measures about 1 inch in diameter and 5 inches long.”

Ann Marie Buerkle, the acting chairwoman of the CPSC, wasn’t shocked by the reports, though, considering the history of reported injuries this time every year.

“The 30 days around the Fourth of July is when we see the most injuries occur,” Buerkle said, according to CNN.

The item number for the recalled products is No. 351064 and UPC No. 027736036561 is located on the packaging of these devices, ABC News noted.

TNT spokeswoman Sherri Simmons said customers who want a full refund for the faulty fireworks should report the product to American Promotional Events.  

“We want people to be safe and know they’re buying a good product,” Simmons said, according to CNN.

Customers can reach American Promotional Events via phone at 800-243-1189, via email at info@tntfireworks.com, or online at www.tntfireworks.com.
