If you repair
I would consider sending it back but, if you decide to keep it and do a repair then consider a lose tenon and GFlex Epoxy from West Systems.
I have a Festool Domino Joiner (DF700) that would make that job easy with a slip tenon about three inches long to register it in plane then use the GFlex which has some give to it for a tight joint that allows some flex if needed (not a brittle joint).
I would use plane sawn wood for your bow tie repairs.
