AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Daisy Manufacturing Co., of Rogers, Arkansas have announced the voluntary recall of about 104,500“ The Natural” Slingshots manufactured in Taiwan. Consumers should stop using the product immediately and contact the Daisy for refund or replacement.

If the slingshot band slips out of its frame during use, the ball at the end of the tubing can strike the user, resulting in serious facial injuries.

Daisy has received at least three reports of injuries: a 12-year-old boy who was blinded in one eye; a 16-year-old boy who has decreased vision; and an 11-year old boy who has three broken teeth.

The two metal frame slingshots being recalled are the Daisy Models ERG-100 and ERG-300, marketed under the name “The Natural.” The model number is written on the packaging.

These slingshots have an offset fork design, a sling made of bright green tubing with a black leather ammunition pouch and small balls inside the tubing where it connects to the frame. Both models have black plastic handles.

The smaller ERG-100 model has the words “Powerline Daisy Mfg. Rogers, AR” on the handle while the same words are found on the adjustable wrist brace of the larger ERG-300 model.

This voluntary recall does not apply to Daisy’s Powerline Slingshots models F16, B52 and P51, which have yellow tubing.

The recalled slingshots were sold at discount department and sporting goods stores nationwide from June 2004 through March 2006. The ERG-100 model sold for about $9, while the ERG-300 model sold for about $17.

Customers should immediately stop using the slingshots and contact Daisy for free pickup and either a full refund or replacement with a comparable slingshot model.

For additional information, contact Daisy Manufacturing Company at (800) 713-2479 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit Daisy’s Web site at http://www.daisy.com.
