Barnett Outdoors LLC, an American crossbow manufacturing company, has recalled approximately 3,300 of its crossbows due to an injury hazard.
About the Barnett Crossbow Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the crossbows’ sensors can malfunction, which involves a problem with sensing whether an arrow is properly loaded, thus posing a potential injury hazard to both the user and the bystander.
CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the recalled crossbows and contact Barnett for a free replacement trigger with a nock sensor.
Three cases of malfunction due to the crossbow unexpectedly firing and at least one related injury, namely a hand laceration, have so far been reported.
