Nationmark Inc. Recalls "8 SHOT CAP
WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Nationmark Inc. of Carrollton, TX is
voluntarily recalling their "8 SHOT CAP GUNS," model number 706. These cap guns
could emit sparks which may cause serious burns to users or bystanders.
Nationmark distributed approximately 54,000 of these cap guns to food and drug chains in
the southwestern United States from May 1988 to August 1991. There are two styles of 8
SHOT CAP GUNS. One gun is orange plastic with the words "8 SHOTS" and
"DETECTIVE SPECIAL." The other gun is black, red and brown plastic and has the
words "BIG BANG-38," "8 SHOOTER," "MADE IN CHINA" and
"DIAMONDBACK." They were sold in hanging plastic blister card packages for
approximately $1.50 each.
The firm, when reporting this recall to the CPSC, said they are aware of one burn injury,
to an adult. This happened last month and is the only known injury since the initial
marketing of the product in 1988. Nationmark Inc. is voluntarily recalling this item to
prevent any additional injuries.
