Aqua Lung Inc. dba U.S. Divers of Vista, CA, is recalling about 130,000 Santa Cruz Jr. youth snorkeling masks.
Notches in the tempered glass can cause the lens to break under certain water pressure, posing a laceration hazard to the user. The firm has received nine reports of the lens cracking or breaking, including three reports of minor cuts and scratches to the face.
This recall involves Santa Cruz Jr. single paned, tempered glass youth snorkeling masks sold under the U.S. Divers and Aqua Lung Sport brands. The masks were sold individually, with a snorkel or as a set with snorkel and fins. The U.S. Divers logo or Aqua Lung Sport logo is on the top of the mask as well as inset on the tempered glass lens. The tempered glass lens is also labeled as tempered. The recalled masks were manufactured before October 2011and do not have a production code on the edge of the frame, near the nose pocket.
The masks, manufactured in Thailand, were sold at Academy, Dick’s, The Sports Authority and other sporting goods stores nationwide and online from March 2011 through July 2012 for about $10 individually and $30 as a set.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled masks and contact U.S. Divers for a replacement mask.
