The sparklers burn faster and with a larger flame than normal and can burn down the stick towards users' hands, posing a burn hazard.
This recall involves Yo Yo Sparklers. The sparklers are 13 1/2 inches long, metallic gray in color on a wire stick. They were sold in multicolored packages containing four individual sparklers. The front of the packages had a logo with the U.S. flag and the words World Class Fireworks at the top, the words YOYO Sparklers and two pictures of sparklers burning at the bottom.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sparklers, take them away from young children and contact Jake's Fireworks to receive a full refund.
Jake's has received 12 reports of incidents of the sparklers burning rapidly down the stick towards users' hands resulting in second degree and third degree burns to consumers hands.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
