PSE 2017 Fang/Thrive Crossbow Recall
Precision Shooting Equipment, Inc. announced on Aug 28th, 2017 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. The recall is being initiated because the trigger mechanisms on these crossbows have been found to be out-of-specification, potentially leading to a premature firing or accidental discharge.
These crossbows were sold at archery and hunting sporting goods stores nationwide from October 2016 through August 2017 for between $300 and $500. Precision Shooting Equipment, Inc. has received three reports of the crossbow firing unexpectedly. No injuries have been reported.
