The Federal Cartridge Company has issued a product safety warning about certain lots of recently manufactured 45 Auto ammunition which may contain an incorrect propellant charge.
Use of the ammo from those lots may result in firearm damage and possible serious injury, the company said.
Anyone with the brand name and parts numbers American Eagle AE4A, AE45N1, or AE45A250; Champion WM5233; GoldMedal (GM45B); Hi-Shok (45C, 45D) and Federal Personal Defense (C45C, C45D) should check to see if they have lot numbers 38X628 through 38X765 or 38T401 through 38T414.
Anyone with ammo from those lots should call 1-800-831-0850 or 1-800-322-2342 and ask for product service.
Federal will replace the ammo.
