Two companies have issues voluntary recalls of scuba diving technology equipment that pose a potential drowning hazard to consumers.
Tabata USA, Inc. of Long Beach, CA has recalled about 250 of its scuba tank regulators. The first stage balance chamber plug of the regulator can reportedly loosen from the scuba regulator, causing a high-pressure leak and creating unstable pressure.
Separately, Mares USA of Boca Raton, FL is recalling about 600 of its air dive computers. An O-ring in the high pressure air connector can reportedly fail and leak air, causing a slow loss of breathing gas.
There have been no reports of incidents or injuries related to either of the recalled products.
