Pennsylvanians prepping for this week’s Independence Day festivities should double-check the fireworks they purchased! Keystone Fireworks stores across Pennsylvania have recalled G-Force artillery shell fireworks for violating the federal regulatory requirements for the product, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced.
The G-Force artillery shell fireworks have been overloaded with pyrotechnics that can cause a larger explosion than is normal. These explosions could result in burn injuries to innocent consumers and bystanders. These fireworks are now banned hazardous substances and are prohibited from being sold under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act.
If you purchased this brand of fireworks you should not use them and immediately return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Keystone’s Pennsylvania locations are in Bradford, Lancaster, Gettysburg, Matamoras, Greencastle, Nottingham and Wilkes-Barre.
