Grandma’s Fireworks pulls 18 products

Local News

(CNN) – Thousands of fireworks have been recalled after an accident caused a boy to lose his hand.

Grandma’s Fireworks in Indiana pulled 18 products from shelves: 25,000 individual fireworks.

The products include names like “Rise to the East,” “Angry Elf,” and “Crazy Robot Flowers.”

The fireworks are apparently overloaded with pyrotechnics which can cause bigger than expected explosions.

In March, a 12-year-old boy lost his hand after the broken end of a rocket exploded.

Another boy sustained minor injuries in the accident.

Anyone who purchased them should stop using them and return them for a full refund, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
