25,000 fireworks are being recalled just days before The 4th of July due to a violation of federal standards. In other words, these fireworks are overloaded with explosives and The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission wants them off the streets.

According to the Detroit Free Press, two Michigan companies, Patriot Pyrotechnics/Bill’s Fireworks and GS Fireworks, sold products recalled June 26 by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Patriot Pyrotechnics, located in Sheridan, sold 11,000 units of 22 kinds of fireworks from January 2017 to July 2018 that are now on the recall list.

GS Fireworks, located in Wyoming, Mich., sold 260 units of 26 products on the recall list between March and May 2018.

I would think that the fireworks above would have already been set off by now but I guess you never know. Hell, an 8-year-old boy in Indiana lost his hand after finding the broken end of a Talon rocket and lit it. It was one of the products on the recall list. No injuries reported in Michigan.
