Huish Outdoors is recalling several of its Hollis and Oceanic diaphragm-style regulators that have a new “HP Poppet,” warning they could pose a drowning hazard to divers because they could restrict air flow at low tank pressures.

The regulators in question would have been sold between October 1, 2017 and May 25, 2018.

Hollis and Oceanic say:

“It is of the utmost importance that if you have a regulator model affected by this quality alert it be serviced and the pin replaced as soon as possible.

“While no incidents have occurred, the possibility of an incident does exist. We strongly recommend that consumers take all necessary precautions when dealing with life support equipment.”

To determine whether you have an affected regulator, for Hollis go to recall.hollis.com and for Oceanic go to recall.oceanicworldwide.com for details.
