Diving Equipment Recalled Due to Drowning Hazard

Comments Off

More than 20,000 sets of diving gear are being voluntarily recalled by Halcyon Manufacturing.

The over pressure valves (OPVs) in the diving equipment could fail allowing the buoyancy compensator devices (BCDs) and the diver lift inflatable devices to leak, posing a drowning.

To this date, there have been no injuries reported.

The recall includes the following: The Halcyon Explorer, Eclipse, CCR35, Evolve and Pioneer Buoyancy Compensator Devices (BCDs) and Halcyon Surface Marker Buoys (SMBs), Lift Bags, Diver Alert Markers (DAMs) Surf Shuttle and Diver Lift Raft Inflatable Devices.

The recalled diving equipment should be returned to an authorized Halcyon distributor or dealer for a free inspection and if necessary a free replacement of the affected part. In the meantime, the equipment should not be used.

Consumer Contact: Call Halcyon at (800) 425-2966 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, visit the company’s Web site at www.halcyon.net/opv-recall, or email the firm at techservices@halcyon.net
