More than 100,000 biometric gun safes recalled for serious injury risk

More than 120,000 gun safes have been recalled for faulty biometric systems that may allow them to open for unauthorised users. According to notices issued by The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), biometric gun safes manufactured by Bulldog Cases, Machir, MouTec and Awesafe are affected by the recall.

Multiple accounts of the safes opening when they should not were reported to the companies, prompting recalls due to the risk of injury or even death. Bulldog Cases recalled its Magnum Biometric Pistol Vault (BD4030B), Magnum Biometric Pistol Vault with Shelf (BD4040B) and Magnum Biometric Top Load Pistol Vault (BD4055B) due to failings of its biometric security system. The affected safes were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Walmart and firearm stores and on Amazon from July 2016 to January 2024.

Machir reported 15 cases of unauthorised users opening Machir gun safes due to errors with the biometric safety system. As a result, it is recalling about 24,820 units as identified by serial numbers that can be found on the recall page.

Consumers should immediately stop using the biometric lock feature, remove the batteries, and only use the key for the recalled safes to store their items until they get the free replacement
