Winco Fireworks International Black Cat fountain cones

Don't Use These Winco Fountain Cones

The company has received three reports of these fireworks spraying outward but no injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately return the recalled fountains to the retailer where they purchased them for a refund or exchange.

Winco Fireworks International of Lone Jack, Mo., has recalled about 14,000 units of Black Cat Glitter fountain cones that are sold in packages of three, with model number BC269 printed on the bottom of the packaging and the words "Crackling Glitter," "Colorful Glitter," or "Gold Glitter" printed in black type on the front of the cone because, when the Chinese-made fountains are ignited, they can burst and spread sparks and pyrotechnic materials outward instead of upward as intended. They pose fire and burn hazards to bystanders, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission's recall announcement.

The cone-shaped fireworks devices are approximately 6 inches tall and have the Black Cat logo on the packaging.

Consumers who bought these may contact Winco Fireworks toll-free (888-697-2217) from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. CDT weekdays or online at www.blackcatfireworks.com -- click on "Community" then "Product Recall" for more information.

The company has received three reports of these devices spraying outward but no injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately return the recalled fountains to the retailer where they purchased them for a refund or exchange. They were sold at fireworks retailers nationwide from March 2016 through June 2016 for about $9.
