About 48,500 Scubapro MK 20 First Stage Regulators are being voluntarily recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.
Consumers should stop using the product immediately and visit an authorized Scubapro dealer to have a service upgrade completed.
The CPSC found that during annual servicing of the product, dealers may have over-tightened a piece that could result in a stress crack and failure of the regulator, posing a drowning hazard.
The regulators were sold at Scubapro dealers from January 1996 through December 2001 for about $260 US.
No associated injuries have been reported, but the company has received eight reports of units failing after being serviced.
