    A recall was issued Tuesday, June 27, 2017, for TNT Red White & Blue Smoke fireworks sold in Ohio, Illinois, Vermont and Wisconsin starting in May.

    About 36,000 TNT-brand fireworks are being recalled in four states after three people received burns.

    TNT Red, White, & Blue Smoke fireworks "can explode unexpectedly after being lit, posing burn and injury hazards to consumers," the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

    Anyone who has the fireworks should stop using them and get in touch with America Promotional Events for a full refund. The company has received three incident reports detailing burn injuries.

    The roughly $5 firework packages were sold in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin starting this May at stores including Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Target and Walmart. The product can be identified with UPC number 027736036561.
