Scuba Diving Safety

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Stearns Inc., of St. Cloud, Minnesota, on March 28, 2007 announced voluntary recalls of the consumer product called West Marine Inflator Pump. Scuba divers in a possession of the recalled inflator pumps should stop using recalled products due to safety considerations. The total 1,400 units were sold. The West Marine Inflator Pumps Importer official name is Stearns Inc., of St. Cloud, Minn. The original importer Sevylor Inc., was recently acquired by Stearns Inc. Hazard: The inflator pumps can explode during use, ejecting sharp plastic parts and posing a serious laceration hazard to consumers. The company received three reports of pumps exploding, the incidents causing injuries to scuba divers. One consumer reported lacerations and two fractured ribs, the other two cases involved minor lacerations to the face and chest of the consumers. The recalled inflator pump can be described as having a blue body with a black handle, hose, and pressure gage. The pump is 5-inches (12.7 cm) high and weighs about 3 pounds. The gear is attached a tag with manufacturer's model number HB-183BG and the date code 1203. Preventing accidents of the sort must remain the key concern in scuba diving involving manufacturers responsibility for the quality of the scuba gear and equipment supplied.
