CPSC, Fireworks of Alabama Announce Recall of Bamboo-Stick Sparklers
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Fireworks of Alabama, Inc. of Adamsville, Ala., is
voluntarily recalling about 72,000 boxes of bamboo stick sparklers. The
sparklers' bamboo-stick handles can catch fire, burn and disintegrate
and emit burning fragments during use. These sparklers present a fire
hazard and a risk of burn injury.
CPSC and Fireworks of Alabama have not received any reports of
injuries associated with these bamboo stick sparklers. This recall is
being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.
The recalled sparklers are packaged in a multicolored cardboard
box and sold with six sparklers per box. The sparklers measure about 7-
inches long. Labels on the packaging read in part "Bamboo Stick Color
Sparklers," "6 PIECES," and "MADE IN CHINA." Only bamboo sparklers with
"LB-N011-7" printed on the packaging are included in the recall.
Variety stores sold these sparklers nationwide from June 2002
through December 2002 for about $2 a box.
Consumers should stop using these sparklers immediately and return
them to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more
information, consumers can contact Fireworks of Alabama, Inc. at (800)
289-5569 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
