Technosport Recalls Omersub Zero Cube Mask

Technosport's Recalled Omersub Zero Cube Dive Mask

Technosport has issued a recall notice via the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for 2,600 of its Omersub Zero Cube Masks sold in the USA.

“Non-conforming glass was used for the lens, which can shatter posing an injury hazard” the company said.

As of June 30, Technosport cited 12 incidents where a lens had shattered, although no injuries have been reported.

To obtain a replacement mask, you can call Technosport toll-free in the USA at +1-800-853-1911 between 10am and 6pm Eastern time Monday through Friday, or send an email to info@technosportinc.com or go to the company website.

Update 6th July 14:00 UTC

DeeperBlue.com has spoken to Omersub and have been issued this statement:

This issue also affects masks also sold outside the US, even though US is the main market for this product. Omer has already activated a process of changing the masks in our dealer network worldwide. Omer has evidence that the lenses that have broken are the result of the mask falling or breaking in the dive bag, eventually due to weights hitting the lenses. No injury whatsoever has been caused to freedivers, scuba divers or spearfishers.  We are issuing new masks that will have thicker lenses to correct the issue.

 

In addition a representative from Technosport had this to add:

The issue is specific to versions of the mask sold prior to November 2012 and have a shiny facial skirt.  Models sold after November 2012 have a matte facial skirt.

If in doubt please contact your local Omersub representative for more information.
