CPSC, Kmart Announce Recall of Dive Masks

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kmart of Troy, Mich., is recalling about 74,000 Healthways Ocean Side dive masks. The glass in the masks can break into sharp pieces and cut divers.

Kmart has received seven reports of masks' glass breaking, resulting in one diver's hand being cut.

The Healthways Ocean Side dive mask is made of fluorescent yellow, marine blue or raspberry plastic and clear tempered glass. The mask was part of a dive set that included a snorkel and fins. The words "Healthways Ocean Side...Tempered" are printed on the front of the mask.

The dive set is packaged in a blue, yellow and white cardboard box labeled in part, "Barbados Healthways Ocean Side...4-Piece Dive Set...Made in China for Kmart." The dive set is visible through a plastic window on the front of the box. The following UPC codes are on the box: 609299960042, 74767136154, 609299960011, 747671361510, 609299960028, 747671361527, 609299960035 or 747671361534.

Kmart and Super Kmart stores nationwide sold the dive mask set from February 1997 through August 1997 for about $20.

Consumers should stop using these dive masks immediately and return them to the nearest Kmart store for a refund. Consumers will receive $8 for the dive mask or a full refund for the set. For more information, consumers should call Kmart at (800) 63KMART anytime or access Kmart's web site at
