CPSC, TNT Fireworks Announce Recall of Party Poppers Sold at Wal-Mart

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), American Promotional Events Inc., doing business as TNT, of Florence, Ala., is voluntarily recalling about 4,000 Party Poppers. The Party Popper is a rocket-shaped device that shoots into the air when the string is pulled. The cone-shaped top can pop off rapidly, and can hit and injure both children and adults.

CPSC and TNT have not received any reports of incidents involving the Party Poppers. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The recalled Party Poppers are packaged in units of four. The Party Poppers were sold in clear cellophane wrappers with blue, yellow and red cardboard headers. The Party Poppers and the packaging are labeled "TNT BIG FUN PARTY POPPER." The Party Poppers are shaped like rockets with 3 1/2-inch wooden support sticks.

Wal-Mart stores sold these Party Poppers nationwide from January 2003 through March 2003 for about $2.

Consumer should stop using these Party Poppers immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. For more information, consumers can contact TNT toll-free at (800) 243-1189 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
