Recalled Diving Wings Pose A Drowning Hazard. Besea W50 Diving Wings with Poseidon Inner Bladders have been recalled because of a drowning hazard. The recall involves about 300 diving wing sets sold at Poseidon dealers nationwide from September 2007 through June 2008 for about $366.
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), the bladder located inside the diving wing can break, causing the wing to fail to operate as a floating/buoyancy device. This poses a drowning hazard to divers. Poseidon has received 15 reports of inner bladders breaking. No injuries have been reported.
Recall Involves Poseidon Inner Bladders
The recall involves the Poseidon inner bladders with batch number 5445 sold with the Poseidon Besea W50 wings. The inner bladder is located inside the outer cover of the wing. The batch number and “Poseidon” are molded on a tab located between the “legs” of the inner bladder.
Consumers who have wings that contain the recalled inner bladders should stop using the wing immediately and contact Poseidon for a free replacement. For additional information, contact Poseidon toll-free at (877) 673-4366 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
