Aqua Lung Inc. dba U.S. Divers of Vista, CA, is recalling about 44,000 Martinique Jr. single lens snorkeling mask sets.
Notches in the tempered glass lens on the mask can break under certain water pressure, posing a laceration hazard to the user. The firm has received eight reports of the lens cracking or breaking, including four reports of cuts and scratches to the face.
This recall involves Martinique Jr. single paned, tempered glass youth snorkeling masks sold in a set with snorkel and fins. The masks feature a silicone face skirt, strap and adjustable buckles. The mask is blue with a silver accent piece that frames the tempered glass lens. The U.S. Divers logo is on the upper bridge of the mask as well as inset on the tempered glass lens. The lens is also labeled as tempered. The buckles are each printed with the U.S. Divers “wave” logo.
The masks, manufactured in Thailand, were sold exclusively at Costco Wholesale stores nationwide from November 2010, through July 2011, for about $30.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled masks and contact U.S. Divers for a replacement mask.
