PhotoWinco Fireworks International of Lone Jack, Mo., is recalling about 14,000 Black Cat Cone Fountain Fireworks.


When ignited, the device can burst and spread sparks and pyrotechnic materials outward instead of upward as intended, posing fire and burn hazards to bystanders.


The firm has received three reports of the devices spraying outward. No injuries have been reported.


This recall involves Black Cat Glitter fountain cones sold in packages of three. The cones have model number BC269 printed on the bottom of the packaging. The cone-shaped fireworks devices are approximately 6-inches tall and have the Black Cat logo on the packaging. The words “Crackling Glitter,” “Colorful Glitter” or “Gold Glitter” is printed in black type on the front of the cone.


The fireworks, manufactured in China, were sold at fireworks retailers nationwide from March 2016, through June 2016, for about $9.


What to do


Consumers should immediately return the recalled fountains to the retailer where purchased for a refund or exchange.


Consumers may contact Winco Fireworks toll-free (888) 697-2217 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at and click on “Community” for more information.
