The CPSC and Brass Eagle announced a voluntary recall of roughly 243,000 “Blade Turbo” paintball markers and the “Paintball Breakout Players Kit.” The carbon dioxide cartridges can be forcibly ejected out of the back of the paintball marker and break the plastic screw-on cap. This possibility poses a serious risk of injury to the paintball marker's operator who can be hit forcefully by the CO2 cartridges or the plastic screw-on cap. At least 73 incidents involving the recalled paintball markers have been reported, including seven injuries.
