Diving Unlimited International Recalls Weight Systems Due to Drowning Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–July 12, 2011. ┬áThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: DUI Weight & Trim System Classic and DUI Weight & Trim System II

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

Importer: Diving Unlimited International Inc. of San Diego

Hazard: 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. This poses a drowning hazard to consumers.

Description: The weight harnesses are made of heavyweight nylon and are black in color with gray handles. The DUI logo appears on the pockets. The Weight & Trim System Classic has two small weight pockets on each side. The Weight & Trim System II has one large weight pocket on each side.

Sold at: Diving equipment retailers nationwide and in Canada between July 2010 and April 2011 for about $124.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the systems and call DUI at (800) 325-8439 Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT or e-mail [email protected] to receive a free repair of the system.
