    posted in threads before, but this is an official sticky

    Beretta U.S.A. Corp. has discovered a potential condition with Beretta .22 caliber NEOS semiautomatic pistols in which the pistol will fire even if the safety is activated and, in some cases, the pistols may fire if the safety is moved from the OFF to the ON position. Chances of either of these situations occurring is extremely remote and no injuries have occurred because of this condition, however, because of safety concerns relating to this situation, Beretta U.S.A. Corp. is immediately implementing a recall of Beretta .22 caliber NEOS semiautomatic pistols.

    If you own a Caracal F or C pistol with a serial number identified as being affected by this recall, please do not load or fire your Caracal F or C pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have the trigger unit replaced, completely free of charge, using the following steps:

    Step 1 - Contact us at 205-655-7050 (Monday-Friday 8-5 Central Standard Time), or at info@caracal-usa.com and provide the model and serial number of your pistol.

    3.3 XD-S™ SAFETY RECALL
    Issued August 28, 2013

    Springfield Armory® is initiating this voluntary safety recall to upgrade 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols with new components, which eliminate the possibility of a potentially dangerous condition. We want to emphasize that no injuries have been reported to date.

    Springfield has determined that under exceptionally rare circumstances, some 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and .45ACP caliber pistols could experience an unintended discharge during the loading process when the slide is released, or could experience a double-fire when the trigger is pulled once. The chance of these conditions existing is exceptionally rare, but if they happen, serious injury or death could occur.

    What should you do?

    STOP USING YOUR 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP PISTOL AND CAREFULLY UNLOAD IT!

    To begin the upgrade process and for fastest response, go to www.springfieldrecall.com. Request a return authorization for the 3.3 XD-S™ Recall. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, email address and the serial number of your 3.3 XD-S™. The serial number is located on the frame beneath the dust cover (accessory rail).

    If you don’t have computer access you may initiate the upgrade process by calling 800-680-6866. If you no longer own the 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol, please advise Springfield of the current owner.

    What pistols are involved?

    This Safety Recall applies only to:

    Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm pistols - serial numbers between XS900000 and XS938700.

    Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols - serial numbers between XS500000 and XS686300.

    This Safety Recall does not apply to any XD® or XD(M)® pistols.

    What will Springfield do?

    Springfield will send you a return authorization and mailing label, allowing you to return your 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol to Springfield at no cost to you. Springfield will upgrade your 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol with the new components, and return it to you. Springfield will provide tracking numbers so you can monitor the receipt and return of your upgrades.

    Questions?

    Visit www.springfield-armory.com for further information about this safety recall. You can reach Springfield at 800-680-6866. Springfield apologizes for this inconvenience, but your safety is our paramount concern.

    We greatly appreciate your loyalty to Springfield products.

    XDS 9MM RECALL
    Springfield says the pistol could fire unintentionally when the slide is released or it may “double-fire” and fire twice with one pull of the trigger. I urge all my readers to check the serial numbers of their XDS handguns immediately, this is a serious safety issue.

    You can read more about the recall at Springfield’s official recall page where you can also file an online claim for a shipping label and service.
