winchester product recall image Two lots of Winchester M*22 .22 long rifle, 40-grain rimfire ammunition have been recalled.

The affected bullets include any labelled with symbol number S22LRT and lot numbers GD42L and GD52L.

The ammunition lot number is imprinted (stamped without ink) on the left tuck flap of the 500-round carton as indicated in the photo. The 1000-round intermediate carton does not have a lot number.

This ammunition may contain double powder charges, which can put the shooter or bystanders at risk of serious personal injury and/or death, or cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable.

The company is advising anyone who may have this ammunition to review the symbol number and lot number. If it has symbol number S22LRT with lot number GD42L or GD52L, immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester at 1-866-423-5224 or visit the company’s website to arrange for a free pick-up of the recalled product.
