RedHead Hubstyle Promo Hunting Blind

Product description

This recall involves the Redhead Hubstyle Promo Hunting Blind. The blind is constructed of polyester fabric with black coating on the interior and Real Tree AP camouflage printed pattern on the exterior.

The blind has no floor and is lightweight. The product's dimensions are 147 centimetres x 147 centimetres x 165 centimetres (58 inches x 58 inches x 65 inches). The blind can be identified by SKU #1795687 and by the Model Number RB-1003, shown on the warning label sewn to the interior of the hunting blind near the door access.

Hazard identified

The company's internal testing has revealed that the materials used in hunting blinds do not meet the requirements for tent flammability under Canadian law. The hunting blind could easily catch fire if exposed to a flame or other ignition source.

Neither Bass Pro Shops nor Health Canada has received any reports of injuries to Canadians related to the use of the affected hunting blind.
