PSE Recalling Three Crossbow Models
Tucson, AZ., August 29, 2017 – Precision Shooting Equipment, Inc. announced Aug 28th that it will conduct a product recall on its 2017 Fang XT, 2017 Fang LT and 2017 Thrive crossbows.
This recall includes all Fang XT, Fang LT and Thrive crossbows shipped from October 1, 2016 to August 25, 2017.
