Product Warning !!!

K. L. and B. J. Kosanke

Display operators need to be aware of the potential for some tiger tail comets to produce extremely dangerous fallout. The problem was discovered only recently and was then investigated by the authors on a visit to the display company’s facility. The shells in question are 4- and 5-inch (100- and 125-mm) White and Red Tiger Tail comets as shown overall in Figure 1. While all of the shells have the same basic labels, there were slight differences as noted in Table 1. However, in trying to determine whether any particular tiger tail comets have the problems found in the ones being discussed in this article, it is probably wise to consider that Chinese manufacturers frequently subcontract work and otherwise share production. Thus, it is possible that not all of the items labeled and appearing as shown in this article may have a problem, and it is also possible that items labeled and appearing differently may have the same problem described in this article.
