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
