Rhino Metals has announced a recall for a potentially dangerous firearm safety item.

The company is recalling all Bighorn P-20 handgun security safes. The safes can be opened without the use of a combination, allowing unauthorized access to a handgun, posing a serious risk of injury to children and others. About 400 safes are included in the recall.

The gray and black safes are made out of metal, measure about 3.25 inches high by 12 inches wide by 10.5 inches deep and weigh about 15 pounds. The Bighorn logo in blue and a four-button, back-lit electronic key pad are located on the top of the safe. The handgun security safes have serial numbers 1412160001 through 1412163000 printed on a sticker on the right hand side.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with this defect.

The safes were sold at Canyon Sports, Coastal Farm & Ranch, Dean Safes, High Noble Safe, Co., North River Customs and other stores nationwide from March 2015 through March 2016 for about $75.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled handgun safes and contact Rhino Metals for instructions and how to return the item for a full refund.
