Some fireworks that are supposed to just smoke when they're lit are under recall because they may explode unexpectedly.

According to a release from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the TNT Red, White, and Blue Smoke fireworks were sold at Albertsons, Kroger, Meijer, Target, Wal-Mart and other retailers in Illinois, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin from May 2017 through June 2017 for about $5.

The fireworks were sold in a bag containing three canisters, one red, one white, and one blue. Each one is a cardboard tube.

The TNT log, "Red, White, & Blue Smoke," and UPC number 027736036561 are on the packaging.

36,100 units are affected by the recall.

Three people have been burned as a result of using these fireworks.
