PADI recalls defective RDP Recreational Dive Planner

PADI recently issued a recall notice for certain Recreational Dive Planners (RDP). Errors by the printer caused inaccurate or missing numbers on these RDPs.

While analysis of the problems shows that the risk of injury from errors is remote, for the sake of safety, PADI asks that you immediately check any RDP that you purchased or received during this period, against the product and production codes listed below. Please note not all RDPs shipped during the latter half of 2002 have printer errors.

All RDPs included in this recall from June 2002 through January 2003, bear the printing mark "Printed in the USA" located on the backside upper right corner and contain a produce number and production code similar to the ones listed below. Only the tables with the following product number and production codes are included in this recall. In addition, if the dive table does not contain a production code it is not included in this recall. The product number and production code is generally located at the bottom right corner on the backside of the table. The product number and production code consist of a series of numbers and letters resembling Product No. 60049 XXXPDJ2. The product number and production code may be transposed on some tables.

In checking the following production codes on your table, ignore the first three digits and only check the last four.
