Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain Barnett Outdoors Black Widow Slingshots.

The recalled Slingshot is about 6 inches tall. It has a black plastic handgrip with red linear rubber studs on the palm side, a silver metal fork and silver metal folding wrist brace.

The folding wrist brace has a black, soft plastic wrist strap. The wrist strap on the recalled Slingshot does not have an “X” where the ends of the wrist strap slide onto the wrist brace. The Slingshot was sold with translucent beige tubular rubber bands with a gray suede pouch attached.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Slingshot’s design and retail presentation. An additional photograph of the recalled product is pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the Slingshots’s wrist strap can slip off the wrist brace when the its pouch is pulled back. This can result in the body of the Slingshot snapping back and striking and injuring the user. Barnett has received two (2) reports of the wrist strap slipping off and the body of the sling striking the users in the face, with one consumer receiving bruises and the other suffering facial fractures.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession a recalled Slingshot, please do not use it. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
