About 127,000 TenPoint and Wicked Ridge crossbows have been recalled by Hunter’s Manufacturing Company Inc., dba TenPoint CrossBow Technologies of Mogadore, Ohio. After the safety has been re-engaged, the crossbows can fire under certain circumstances if a consumer pulls the trigger, posing an injury hazard. This recall involves nine models of two brands of crossbows that can be identified by their serial numbers, which are located on the left side of the barrel of the crossbow below the trigger box. The TenPoint or Wicked Ridge brand name is printed on both sides of the crossbow barrel on all models except the GT Flex. The model name appears on both sides of the stock on all models. The GT Flex crossbows are black.
The other affected models are camouflage patterns. One TenPoint Titan Extreme model crossbow and one Wicked Ridge Warrior HL model crossbow were specially produced in black, rather than the camouflage pattern that is standard for those models. The crossbows were manufactured from 2011 to 2014. For a full listing of crossbow models being recalled, visit http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2015/TenPoint-Crossbow-Technologies-Recalls-Crossbows/. TenPoint has received 19 reports that arrows released from the crossbows when the consumer pulled the trigger under certain circumstances after the safety mechanism was re-engaged. There have been no reported injuries.
The bows were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Dunham’s Sports, Gander Mountain, MC Sports, other hunting and sporting goods stores nationwide; direct sales from TenPoint; and online at Amazon.com, Basspro.com, Cabelas.com, dickssportinggoods.com and other internet retailers from January 2011 to May 2015 for between $400 and $1,800.
