Remington Outdoor Company, Inc. today announced a voluntary recall of Model 887 shotguns manufactured from Dec. 1, 2013 to Nov. 24, 2014 after determining that some of those Model 887 shotguns could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge.

The company's official press release reads as follows:

IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY, THESE PRODUCTS ARE BEING RECALLED

Remington has determined that some Remington Model 887 shotguns manufactured between December 1, 2013 and November 24, 2014 may exhibit a defect causing the firing pin to bind in the forward position within the bolt, which can result in an unintentional discharge when chambering a live round. Therefore, Remington is recalling ALL potentially affected products to fully inspect and repair.

Remington has advised customers to immediately cease use of recalled shotguns and return them to Remington free of charge. The shotguns will be inspected, repaired, tested, and returned as soon as possible. Owners of the recalled shotguns should not attempt to diagnose or repair the shotguns themselves.

Remington has established a dedicated website and toll-free hotline to help consumers determine whether their Model 887 shotguns are subject to recall:
