Lakeville company's treestand recalled after 2 people fell, broke bones

The recall comes days before Minnesota's deer hunting season opens.

A Lakeville company's deer stands have been recalled just days before the kickoff to Minnesota's deer hunting season because in at least two incidents people have fallen and broken bones. 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the recall on roughly 3,400 X-Stand Treestands on Wednesday, including the Silent Adrenaline and Apache models. The recall is also posted on X-Stand Treestands' website

According to the recall, the CPSC has received five reports of the treestand's cable separating, which has resulted in two injuries that involved fractures. 

The CPSC recommends consumers stop using the climbing treestands and contact X-Stand Treestands to receive a refund in the form of a gift card. The recalled items were sold at Sportsman's guide stores and other sporting goods stores nationwide and online from May 2017 through December 2018.

Minnesota's firearm deer hunting season begins Saturday, Nov. 7. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources expects nearly 500,000 hunters to participate when it begins a half-hour before sunrise. 

Firearms deer season is one of several seasons for deer hunters. Archery deer season opened Sept. 19 and runs through Dec. 31 and muzzleloader deer season is from Nov. 28-Dec. 13.
