For the past years, we've been continuously discouraged to use firecrackers for Christmas and New Year. Unfortunately, some of us still choose to buy them because of traditions. Since we cannot just ban all firecrackers because it's like taking a part of our culture, the Department of Health assessed firecrackers and banned some of them instead.
It's banned in the country as a lot of injuries is being attributed to this firecracker. Since Piccolo is a match-like firecracker, it can directly hit the victim if it explodes. A number of children have lost their fingers from lighting Piccolo, urging the Department of Health to put a stop to the selling of this dangerous product.
The terrifying blast of this firecracker is enough for it to be prohibited.
Watusi or Dancing Firecracker
This was banned because of the danger it poses to children who might ingest them.
This giant triangle-shaped firecracker's name should warn you of the explosion it can create and what effect it might give.
There was a time when this was preferred over other firecrackers, but the harm Boga can give was eventually realized.
Among other banned firecrackers that Cebuanos should not consider buying are the following: Mother Rockers, Atomic Big Triangulo, Pillbox, Big Judah's blet, Big Bawang, Five Star, Pla-pa, Og, Giant Whistle Bomb, Kwiton, Kabasi, and other firecrackers without labels.
