Winco Fireworks is recalling about 14,000 Black Cat Glitter fountain cones due to a fire hazard.

The company says 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 recalled cones have been sold at fireworks retailers nationwide from March 2016 through June 2016 for about $9.

The cones come in a pack of three and have model number BC269 printed on the bottom of the packaging. They are approximately 6-inches tall and have the Black Cat logo on the packaging. The words “Crackling Glitter,” “Colorful Glitter” or “Gold Glitter” are printed in black type on the front of the cone.

Winco Fireworks has received three reports of the devices spraying outward, but no injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately return the recalled fountains to the retailer where purchased for a refund or exchange.
