Macon, GA — Edge and HOG (Highly Optimized Gear) Buoyancy Control Devices (BCD) have been voluntarily recalled by WRK Enterprises dba Edge Dive Gear and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for drowning hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on May 3, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the spring in the over pressure valve can corrode and break, thus preventing the buoyancy control device from retaining air. This poses a drowning hazard to consumers.

The CPSC press release reported the following Edge Freedom and Stealth models, and the HOG 32lb Wing model are included in this recall: For full descriptions and serial numbers of the recalled products please visit: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml11/11212.html.

Consumers are advised to return the BCDs to an authorized Edge dealer for a free replacement at no charge.
