Scubapro(r) X650 Diving Regulators Recalled for Drowning Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in
cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary
recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using
recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Scubapro(r) X650 Second Stage Regulator

Units: About 670

Manufacturer: Scubapro(r) with global headquarters located in El Cajon,
Calif.

Hazard: A manufacturing error could cause the main housing of some
regulators to change shape over time, which could cause the cover and
diaphragm to become dislodged. If this occurs, air flow will be
interrupted and the regulators will no longer function, posing a
drowning hazard to users.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description and Models: The recall involves some X650 second stage
regulators. All X650 second stage regulators are clearly marked with a
blue capital "X" next to the numbers "650" in white. Affected regulators
have a visible bump located on the right side of the unit between the
letter "C" and where the mouthpiece attaches to the regulator body.

Sold at: Authorized Scubapro(r) dealers in the U.S. from June 2005
through May 2006 for between $400 and $670

Manufactured In: Genova, Italy

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the product immediately and contact
Scubapro(r) to determine if they have an affected second stage
regulator. If so, they will receive a free replacement regulator. The
company is contacting registered owners of the product directly.

Consumer Contact: For more information, contact Scubapro(r) at (800)
808-3948 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit
