CPSC, Scubapro Announce Recall of G500 Second Stage Regulators Used in Scuba Diving

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Scubapro of Sturtevant, Wis., a division of Johnson Worldwide Associates Inc., is recalling about 1,800 G500 second stage regulators used in scuba diving. The VIVA control knobs on these regulators can detach during a dive allowing water to rush into the regulator, which could result in a diver drowning.

Scubapro has received six reports of the VIVA control knob detaching from the regulator, two of which occurred during a dive. No injuries have been reported.

The G500 second stage regulators involved in this recall have serial numbers less than or equal to 13497450. The serial number is located on the bottom face of the exhaust manifold.

These products were sold in diving specialty stores nationwide from March 1997 through June 1997 for around $300.

Consumers should immediately stop using G500 second stage regulators involved in this recall and contact their local, authorized Scubapro dealer to arrange for a free replacement of the VIVA control knob. All other questions should be directed to Scubapro at (800) 467-2822. Under no circumstances should consumers dive with these regulators until they have been repaired.
