Barnett Outdoors has recalled 3,300 units of certain models of 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 bystander.

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 Barnett Ghost 415 Monochrome and the Barnett Ghost 415 Mossy Oak crossbows have their model names printed on each side and twice on the front of the crossbows. 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.

Thus far, Barnett has received three reports of the crossbow firing unexpectedly, resulting in one incident of a hand laceration.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled crossbows and contact Barnett Outdoors for a free replacement trigger with a nock sensor.

The affected products 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.
