‘Defective’ sparklers recalled after burn reports

Sparklers sold across Gedling borough are being urgently recalled after reports of them leaving people with burns.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Trading Standards Team is urging people in the borough to check their sparklers following an urgent recall.

The Turbo sparklers are thought to have been on sale locally and have been subject to reports of causing burns to some users.

Customers are advised not to use Turbo sparklers with item number 452065 and should instead return them to the retailer from which they were purchased.

Those hosting or attending bonfire events over the weekend are also being asked to look out for the affected products.

Councillor John Handley, Vice-Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Communities and Place Committee, said: “We know that sparklers are popular at this time of year and we are asking our communities to help us share the message to keep people safe.

“It is always distressing to hear of injuries, and we are working with our partner agencies to identify other areas where this product has been on sale.

“We would like to ask anyone who is hosting or attending a bonfire celebration in the coming days to take a few minutes to check any sparklers that you might have purchased and take action if necessary.”

If you have a query about the recall, you can contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service Helpline on 03454 04 05 06.
