Bufalo branded Vespa Fireworks, packaged with a model designation of 0163-P1-5178 and a product number of 5101. This recall alert was submitted by Belgium to the EU Safety Gateway.

These Bufalo branded Vespa Fireworks products were marketed, sold and delivered as consumer-grade Pyrotechnic Devices (i.e., fireworks) for amusement purposes and use on private property. The products are sold in boxes of ten (10) individual Fireworks with a box lid consisting of three coloured panels (green, white and red), black identification lettering and a stylized buffalo head depicted in the centre (i.e., the white) panel. The Fireworks themselves are bright green in colour with the brand, “Vespa” printed and visible on each Pyrotechnic.

No EANs/barcodes, UPCs, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Bufalo branded Vespa Fireworks include the reported finding that the recalled Pyrotechnics are incorrectly labelled, despite the fact that Fireworks are subject to specific measures for safe use in Europe. As a result of this defect, people using these Fireworks may not understand the serious risks that accompany the use of explosive products and therefore how to avoid or mitigate injury when they utilize the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use.
