<"https://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Guardian Full-Face Diving Masks are being recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) just announced.

About 1,700 defective diving masks were sold in the United States; 80 were sold in Canada.

The defective product was manufactured in Taiwan by Undersea Systems International Inc., doing business as (DBA) Ocean Technology Systems, of Santa Ana, California.

The product recall was initiated because the purge assembly on the diving mask can disengage from the regulator, resulting in loss of air to the diver. This poses a drowning hazard to the consumer. To date, Undersea Systems has received one report of a disengaged assembly. No injuries have been reported.

This product recall involves Guardian full-face diving masks with serial numbers 9051284 through 100070954. The serial number is printed on the main regulator body. The diving masks were sold in black with blue accent colors. The Ocean Technology Systems’ logo is affixed to the front of the mask.

The defective diving masks were sold by diving equipment retailers and direct sales nationwide from September 2010 through November 2010 for about $800.

The CPSC and HC are advising consumers to immediately stop using the diving masks and contact Ocean Technology Systems for instructions on conducting a test of the regulator and returning the masks for a free repair. The agencies also point out that it is illegal to sell or to attempt to sell a recalled consumer product.

Ocean Technology Systems can be reached, toll-free, at 1.877.270.1984 anytime; at the firm’s website at www.otscomm.com; or by email at recall@otscomm.com.

Jo-Anne and the team at Parker Waichman is the absolute best. After being rear ended in May I have been contacted on a constant basis, I have been checked up on by them and the rest of the team more than my actual family. They are great listeners and are available. Calling the office is a breeze and never a long wait. I would recommend anyone to them especially based on my experience with them. I really don't think that there is a better set of Lawyers to help with my particular case.
