A recall has been issued for Mission Archery’s MXB crossbows.

The company says the crossbow can fire an arrow unexpectedly without the trigger being pulled, which poses an injury risk to the user and bystanders.

The recall involves crossbows that have the automatic safety located behind the trigger at the rear of the scope mount.

This includes models MXB 320, MXB Dagger, MXB 400 and MXB 360; and serial numbers ranging from XB04879 to XB16555.

Three reports of the crossbows being misfired have been reported. There were no injuries.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled crossbows and return them to a Mission Archery authorized dealer for a free repair, or contact Mission Archery for instructions on shipping the product directly to them for a free repair, including shipping.
