Wisconsin-based company Mission Archery has announced a voluntary recall of its MXB Crossbows today. The recall came after it was found that the crossbow can fire an arrow unexpectedly without the trigger being pulling, presenting a risk for injury to the user and bystanders. Specifically, the recall involves crossbows that have an automatic safety located behind the trigger at the rear of scope mount. About 9,500 crossbows are affected by the recall which includes models MXB 320, MXB Dagger, MXB 400 and MXB 360. The products were sold in a variety of colors including black, a traditional camouflage, white camouflage and pink camouflage pattern. The structure measure between 29 and 35 inches long and were sold individually or as part of a package that included a scope, quiver, bolts and a rope cocking aid. The crossbows were sold nationwide at archery and hunting sporting goods stores from May 2013 through April 2014 for between $600 and $1,300. Currently, the company has received three reports of the crossbow firing unexpectedly. Consumers who may be in possession of this product should cease use immediately and return the crossbow to a Mission Archery authorized dealer for a free repair. Alternatively, consumers can contact Mission Archery for instructions on shipping the product directly to them for a free repair.
