Aqua Lung announced recall yesterday!

About 6,000 Titan DIN 1st Stage scuba regulators and Titan/Conshelf DIN scuba adaptors, made in France by Aqua Lung USA are being recalled.

Apparently, the over-tightening of the DIN retainer during installation can cause it to break and the regulator can detach from the scuba cylinder.  This, obvious, can pose a drowning hazard.

The company has received one report of a DIN retainer breaking under pressure. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled regulators have serial numbers lower than 6062501 stamped on the side of the body. The recalled adaptors are marked "300 BAR MAX" on the side. The recalled products were sold at authorized Aqua Lung dealers nationwide from January 1997 through this month. Details at 877-253-3483.
