Huish Outdoors of Salt Lake City, Utah, is recalling about 1,450 Zeagle brand buoyancy control devices (BCDs) sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The devices can suddenly leak air causing a loss of flotation, posing a drowning hazard to scuba divers.
The firm has received one report of a seam failure in the BCD resulting in air leakage. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves all Zeagle brand Grace and Element BCDs, which are used to help a diver maintain buoyancy under water during scuba diving.
The Grace model is black with light green accents and has the logo “Z/Grace” on the right side pocket and left shoulder. The words “Zeagle Sport” are on the left side pocket.
The Element model is black with red accents and has the logo “Z/Element” on the right side pocket and left shoulder. The words “Zeagle Sport” are on the left side pocket.
The BCDs, manufactured in Vietnam, were sold at authorized Zeagle dealers and online at www.zeagle.com for about $412 for the Grace model and about $490 for the Element model BCD, from September 2015, through August 2016.
