Description du Défaut: June 23, 1977 Release # 77-070 WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 23) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Under Sea Industries of Compton, California today announced a recall of all Scubapro Mark VII and Pilot Mark VII scuba regulators produced since August 25, 1976. The regulators may contain a defective "O" ring in the first stage which could result in failure of the unit's audio warning device, or in a reduction in the air flow to the diver. In either event, there is a potential for serious injury or suffocation, according to the Commission staff. No injuries associated with these regulators have been reported to the Commission. Approximately 2200 regulators are being recalled. The Mark VII and the Pilot Mark VII retail for approximately $180 and $270 respectively. Consumers who have purchased one of these regulators since August 25, 1976 should return it to the place of purchase in order to have the "O" rings replaced free of charge
