Ravin Crossbows LLC has again announced a recall of approximately 220,000 white arrow notches due to a risk of serious injury.

The recall involves all white plastic molded snap notches used in the arrows of Ravin® crossbows.

If the notch is not fully engaged with the bowstring, the crossbow may not discharge when the trigger is pulled. This can cause the arc to discharge when re-notching the arrow, posing a risk of injury.

Ravin Crossbows issued the initial recall in December 2017. At the time, there were reports of around two dozen finger injuries.

In August 2021, Ravin said he had received 51 reports of finger injuries while notching or re-notching the white notches, including 21 serious injuries and 28 new finger injuries since the initial recall.

There have also been “reports of other injuries resulting from maintenance and other issues,” according to the recall notice.

The white arrow notches were sold in packs of 12 and also as original equipment with the Ravin R9, R15 crossbows and Ravin arrows.

They were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods and other stores nationwide from October 2016 through November 2017 for between $ 8 and $ 15 when sold separately.

Raving Crossbows offers free replacement orange notches and up to $ 1 in merchandise credit for each recalled notch that is returned.
