Oceanic USA has recalled about 24,700 Oceanic CDX first stage regulators used for scuba diving. Extreme vibration can occur within these CDX regulators, which can cause an air leakage underwater. Divers could run out of air and drown.
Oceanic has received six reports of noise or vibration accompanied by air leakage. No injuries have been reported.
Oceanic CDX first stage regulators subject to the recall have serial numbers 9200001 to 9205622, 9800013 to 9801711, 0200001 to 0213294, 0D0001 to 0D3046, or 9D0001 to 9D3273. The serial number is stamped into the side of the body of the regulator. The regulators have the name "OCEANIC" written on the rubber boot of the first stage. These CDX regulators were sold with the following second stage regulators: Alpha 7, Delta 3, Gamma 2, and Zeta.
Authorized Oceanic dealers sold these regulator sets worldwide from May 1999 through October 2002 for between $330 to $640, depending on the second stage.
