Dive Rite Wings for Divers Recalled

Could Pose Drowning Hazard For Divers

The over pressure valve springs in the diving equipment could rust and fail, causing the Wings to leak and posing a drowning hazard to divers.

This recall involves the following models of Dive Rite Wings: Travel, Venture, Rec, Trek, Classic, Nomad, and Super Wings. The recalled Wings are buoyancy control devices that come in red, blue, or black, and have an opaque white or blue-tinted bladder and welded-in flanges. They have a serial number between 42000 and 72000, which can be found on a white tag attached along a seam of the Wing.

Wings that have a black bladder are not included in this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and return it to the point of purchase for a free replacement of the overpressure valve spring.

For more information, consumers may contact Dive Rite at 1-800-495-1046.
