A recall was announced by Talon Hunting Hang-on Tree Stands and Brackets/Straps manufactured by Summit Treestands LLC, of Decatur, Alabama. The recall announcement came after multiple reports of brackets unexpectedly detaching from the tree when the brackets fail, posing a fall hazard to consumers, resulting in injuries, including broken bones. Consumers purchased the stands at hunting stores and in catalogs nationwide from May 2009 through November 2009 should stop using this product. This recall involves Talon Raptor brackets/straps and Cabelas Realtree series hang-on tree stands with the Talon brackets/straps. A safety label sewn onto the bracket reads Treestand Strap Assembly. Tree stands involved in this recall have the following model numbers: rsEagle 82044, rsOsprey 82041, rsFalcon 82042, rsHawk 82043 and Cabelas Realtree Outfitters Series Hawk Deluxe 81509.
