U.S. CPSC announces recall of diving wings with faulty inner bladders

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Poseidon are recalling around 300 faulty diving wing flotation devices because they pose a drowning hazard.

Besea W50 Diving Wings with Poseidon Inner Bladders are affected by the recall. The inner bladder can rupture, and the diving wing may cease to float, posing a drowning risk to the user.

The affected inner bladders are identified by the batch number 5445, which is located inside the outer cover of the wing.

Poseidon has received 15 reports of the bladders breaking, but no injuries have been reported.

The defective wings were sold at authorized Poseidon dealers across the U.S. between September 2007 through June 2008.

Those who have wings with the defective bladders are advised to stop using them immediately and contact Poseidon at 1-877-673-4366 for a free replacement.
