Crossbows recalled over risk of firing even when safety is engaged

Posted on May 18, 2015 4:25 pm under Product Liability

About 127,000 crossbows manufactured by Hunter’s Manufacturing Company Inc. are being recalled over fears that the crossbows might fire if a user pulls the trigger even when the safety feature is engaged, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on May 18.

Two brands are affected by the recall – TenPoint and Wicked Ridge crossbows. There are a total of nine models affected by the recall, the model numbers and serial numbers of which are detailed in the CPSC site. All the recalled products were manufactured between 2011 and 2014, and were sold from January 2011 to May 2015 at different hunting and sporting goods outlets nationwide.

Consumers with defective TenPoint or Wicked Ridge crossbows are urged to contact the company for details to get a free repair.
