Zeagle Recalls Five Types of BCs

from the November, 2018 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Zeagle is recalling five models of its Sport BCs because buttons on the direct-feed inflator and/or the oral inflation valve can break or fracture while in use, leading to either loss of air or uncontrolled inflation of the BC, which could cause a diver to drown. The Consumer Product Safety Commission states 23 reports of buttons breaking, but no injuries so far.

This recall is for the models Sport Base, Sport Resort, Sport Base Plus, Sport Resort Plus and Sport Focus. Around 2,600 of the Sport BCs for recall are in the U.S., and another 800 in Canada. (None were sold in Europe because they didn't meet the required safety standards.)

If you own one of these BCs, stop using it and either call Zeagle at 888-270-8595, or visit a registered dealer for instructions on how to receive a free replacement ( recall).
