PhotoKeystone Importing & Sales of Lancaster, Pa., is recalling about 1,660 G-Force Artillery Shell Fireworks.

The fireworks are overloaded with pyrotechnics intended to produce an audible effect, violating the federal regulatory requirements for this product.

Overloaded fireworks can result in a greater than expected explosion, posing explosion and burn hazards to consumers.

This recall involves the G-Force Artillery Shells packaged in a box of six with the tube included.

The tube contains the G-Force logo in red and yellow. The shells are about 5 inches long, 2 inches in diameter, and are covered in a blue wrapping.

The fireworks, manufactured in China, were sold at Keystone Fireworks locations from November 2018, through May 2019, for about $60.
