Recall news

By The Associated Press | July 12, 2011 | 12:44 PM EDT

The following recall has been announced:


DETAILS: DUI Weight & Trim System Classic and DUI Weight & Trim System II were imported by Diving Unlimited International Inc. of San Diego and sold at diving equipment retailers nationwide and in Canada between July 2010 and April 2011.

WHY: Manufacturing defects in the lanyard connecting the handle to the pocket or the cable securing the pocket to the harness can prevent the weight pockets from easily detaching from the harness and releasing the weights when the handle is pulled — posing a drowning hazard.


HOW MANY: About 1,454 in the U.S. and 46 in Canada.
