PhotoBarnett Outdoors of Tarpon Springs, Fla., is recalling about 3,300 crossbows.

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 a bystander.

The company has received three reports of the crossbow firing unexpectedly, resulting in one report of a hand laceration.

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

Browning OneSixTwo

80004

Browning OneSixOne

80005

Barnett Razr Ice

78212

Barnett Razr

78210

 

 

The crossbows, manufactured in the U.S., and sensors, manufactured in China, 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.

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.
