Halcyon diving equipment recalled
Halcyon diving equipment is being recalled because of a drowning hazard, a U.S. watchdog agency says.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Halcyon Manufacturing Inc. of High Springs, Fla., is voluntarily recalling a variety of apparatus that share the same over-pressure valves.
The over-pressure valves could fail, causing various products to leak, posing a drowning hazard, the commission said.
The equipment was sold nationwide January 2006 through December 2008 for between $350 and $450 for buoyancy compensation devices, and for between $50 and $275 for inflatable devices.
Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled items immediately and return them to an authorized Halcyon distributor for a free inspection and replacement if necessary.
Consumers can call 800-425-2966 for information.
