Barnett Outdoors Recalls Crossbows Due to Injury Hazard
Barnett Outdoors is recalling about 3,300 Crossbows because the sensor that senses whether an arrow is properly loaded can malfunction, which can cause the crossbow to fire unexpectedly, posing an injury hazard to the user or bystander.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled crossbows and contact the firm for a free replacement trigger with a nock sensor.
This recall involves six models of Barnett crossbows that can be identified by their model numbers printed on the limbs of the riser and dome label on the bow. The following crossbows are included in the recall:
|Name of Product||Model|
|Barnett Ghost 415 Monochrome||78044|
|Barnett Ghost 415 Mossy Oak||78059|
|Barnett Razr Ice||78212|
The Barnett Ghost 415 Monochrome and the Barnett Ghost 415 Mossy Oak crossbows have their model names printed on each side and twice on the front of the crossbows. The Browning OneSixTwo and OneSixOne have their names printed on the front of the crossbows. The Barnett Razr Ice is blue with “RazrIce” printed on both sides and the front of the crossbow. The Barnett Razr is silver with “Razr” printed on the front of the crossbow. The safety on the Barnett affected triggers is silver in color and the safety on the affected Browning triggers is black.
Barnett has received three reports of the crossbow firing unexpectedly, resulting in one report of a hand laceration.
Units were sold at Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and other retailers and dealers nationwide from April 2016 through November 2016 for between $800 and $1,600.
