People are being urged to check their sparklers after an urgent product recall.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Trading Standards Team is urging the checks after the Turbo brand of sparklers are reported to have caused burns to some users.

Customers are advised not to use Turbo sparklers with item number 452065 and should instead return them to where they were bought.

Groups or individuals who are holding bonfire events over the weekend are also being asked to look out for 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.”
