Scuba Equipment Recall-apalooza

This is a post by our friends at Divester: Manufacturing recalls happen all the time, some you can ignore, some you can't.

I always like to take a look at Scuba equipment recalls, mainly because scuba diving equipment is Life Support equipment and when you think of it that way, you don't want to screw around life support equipment.

Some of these are old, some more recent but this list is mainly for you who have never stopped to think that anything other than cars, tires, or coffee makers could have a recall.

The HALCYON BCD Stainless Steel Power Inflator is one that I own and stopped using after it kept auto-inflating at depth. At time of the recall, they didn't have enough in stock, so I replaced it with an old plastic one and forgot about it, until today. Maybe I'll dig it out of the scuba shed and send it back.
