Aqualung has recalled 330 of its Apeks Exotec buoyancy compensator devices, according to a notice from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The recall “concerns four models where the EXOTEC BCD should have a longer ‘Pull Cord,'” according to Aqualung’s recall notice.
The CPSC notice adds:
“The dump valve knob can get stuck when the recalled BCD is inflated, opening the dump valve which stops the BCD from fully inflating. This can result in a loss of buoyancy control and poses injury (decompression sickness) and drowning hazards.”
