Winchester Recalls Two Lots of M-22 Rimfire Ammo

Found this article in "April 2014" "American Rifleman"

Page 30

"Winchester Recalls Two Lots Of M-22 Rimfire Ammo"

"Olin Corporation through its Winchester Division, is recalling two lots of M-22, .22 Long Rifle 40-gr. black copper-plated round-nose rimfire ammunition.

Symbol Number: S22LRT
Lot Numbers: CD42L and CD52L

Winchester Has Determined the above lots of .22 Long Rifle ammunition may contain double powder charges. Ammunition with double powder charges may subject the shooter or bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury and/or death, or cause firearm damage rendering the firearm inoperable. To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Symbol Number and Lot Number. The ammunition Lot Number is imprinted (stamped without ink) on the left tuck flap of the 500-round carton. The 1,000 round intermediate carton does not have a Lot Number. If it is Symbol Number S22LRT with a Lot Number containing GD42L or Gd52L immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester at (866) 423-5224 or visit online at winchester.com to arrange for free pick-up of the recalled ammunition."

I hope this helps, please check you .22 ammo and make sure its not one of the above, and pass the word to every one you know.
