LONE JACK, Mo. — Winco Fireworks is recalling thousands of fireworks ahead of July 4th due to a fire hazard.

The Missouri based company issued the recall Friday for 14,000 Black Cat Glitter fountain cones.

According to the recall, the device can burst and spread sparks outward instead of upward as intended, causing potential burning and injuries for bystanders.

The cones come in packs of three and have a model number of BC269 on the bottom of the packaging.

They are approximately 6-inches tall and have the Black Cat logo on the packaging. The words “Crackling Glitter” “Colorful Glitter” or “Gold Glitter” are printed in black on the front of the cones.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the fireworks were sold nationwide from March 2016 through June 2016 for about $9.

Winco Fireworks has received three reports of the devices spraying outward. No injuries have been reported.

Anyone with the product should immediately return it to the retailer where they purchased it from for a refund or exchange.
