OXFORD, Ohio — Grandma’s Fireworks is recalling 25,000 of their fireworks after violating federal standards and costing a child his hand.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, fireworks sold by the company are overloaded with pyrotechnics, which can cause greater than expected explosions and hazards to the consumer.

The decision stems from an incident involving a  twelve-year-old boy from Oxford, Ohio in March. He found the broken end of a Talon rocket and tried to set it off and lost his hand.

The fireworks were sold at Grandma’s Fireworks in West College Coroner, Indiana between January 2009 through April 2019. Customers who bought the fireworks can return them for a full refund.

The recall involves 18 different kinds of fireworks. To see the full list, CLICK HERE.
