Winco has recalled about 4,500 canister shell fireworks kits due to impact and burn hazards, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The shell can blow up in the tube during firing, posing impact and burn hazards to the user and bystanders, the report says.

Winco has received two reports of the firing tubes being too narrow, including one report of a shell blowing up in a tube and causing minor burns and cuts to the legs of a store employee.

The recall involves Contraband 24 fireworks kits with canister shells and firing tubes that are designed to be used multiple times. Shells are put into each tube one by one and lit.
