Diving Equipment Recalled Due to Drowning Hazard

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Lamartek Inc., dba Dive Rite of, Lake City, Fla., announced a voluntary recall of Dive Rite Wings.

The over pressure valve springs in about 16,000 diving equipment units could rust and fail allowing the buoyancy compensator devices to leak, posing a drowning hazard to divers. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The Dive Rite Wings affected in this recall include the following models: Travel, Venture, Rec, Trek, Classic, Nomad, and Super Wings. The wings were sold in red, blue, or black. Springs were used on wings that have an opaque white or blue tinted bladder and welded in flanges. Wings with a black bladder are not affected. Only the Dive Rite wings that have a serial number range from 42000 through 72000 are affected by this recall. The serial numbers can be found on a white tag attached along a seam of the wing.

The equipment was manufactured in the United States and was sold at diving equipment retailers and distributors nationwide from June 2006 through October 2008 for about $359.

Consumers should immediately stop using recalled diving equipment and return it to an authorized distributor or dealer for a free replacement of the overpressure valve spring. For additional information, contact your local dealer or Dive Rite at (800) 495-1046 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or visit www.diverite.com.
