DUI BC Recall

from the January, 2002 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

DUI is recalling 3,500 BCs because molding variations in one component of the over pressure valve (OPV) could prevent it from sealing properly and create a potential drowning hazard. Neither DUI nor the Consumer Product Safety Commission has received reports of injuries. While this variation is not present in every OPV, they cannot determine which OPVs are suspect so they are requiring that all OPVs be updated with new assemblies. The old OPVs are equipped with red pulls. All new OPVs are equipped with yellow pulls. All DUI BCs sold prior to November 1, 2001 use this OPV. Consumers should stop using these units and contact DUI immediately at (800) 325-8439, (619) 236-1203, or visit the DUI website at DUI will send you a new OPV with installation instructions immediately.
