The following recall has been announced:
HIGH-PRESSURE SCUBA DIVING AIR HOSES
DETAILS: High-pressure scuba diving air hoses manufactured in Taiwan and imported by A-Plus Marine Supply Inc. of Gulf Breeze, Fla. The hoses were sold at scuba diving retailers nationwide from April 2012 through June 2012 for about $34. They have a black, smooth rubber outer covering and are about 32 to 36 inches long.
WHY: The hose, which connects the regulator to the tank's pressure gauge, can separate, reducing the available air supply to the diver and posing a drowning hazard.
INCIDENTS: Three reports of hoses separating, but no injuries have been reported.
HOW MANY: About 40.
FOR MORE: Contact A-Plus Marine by telephone at 800-352-2360, from noon to 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, or visit online at http://www.aplusmarine.com and click the recall notice on High Pressure Braided Hose Safety Recall.
