Innovative Scuba Concepts Recalls Diving Regulator Components Due to
Drowning Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in

emergency ascent procedure fails.

separated during a dive and caused the diver to ascend using the buddy
breathing technique. No injury was reported.

aftermarket regulator component. There are no markings such as a date or
production code embossed on the unit. Contact Innovative Scuba Concepts
for information on where the recalled units were sold.

Sold at: Specialty retail dive stores nationwide from January 2006
through March 2007 for about $40. They also could have been installed by
a dive shop regulator technician.

Manufactured in: Taiwan

Remedy: Consumers should stop using regulators with the swivel attached
and contact the dive store where purchased for a refund.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Innovative Scuba
Concepts Inc. at (800) 472-2740 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday
