Reasons the product is recalled

Corrosion may occur on the inside of new or reloaded ammunition cartridges, which weakens their strength.

The hazards to consumers

The weakened cartridge may split on firing of rifle, causing burning gases to leak from the rifle and rifle to malfunction during use. This may pose a risk of serious injury or death to the user. This hazard may also occur in reloaded cartridges.

What consumers should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the cartridges (new or reloaded) and contact their nearest Beretta Australia Firearms Dealer for replacement cartridges or a full refund of the purchase price.
