San Diego, CA — Drowning hazards have prompted the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Diving Unlimited International Inc. to voluntarily recall DUI Weight & Trim System Classic and DUI Weight & Trim System II. The CPSC announced the product recall on July 12, 2011.

The nationwide product recall was issued after discovering that manufacturing defects in the lanyard connecting the handle to the pocket or the cable—which secures the pocket to the harness—can keep the weight pockets from easily detaching from the harness. This manufacturing defect poses a drowning hazard to consumers.

“The weight harnesses are made of heavyweight nylon and are black in color with gray handles. The DUI logo appears on the pockets. The Weight & Trim System Classic has two small weight pockets on each side. The Weight & Trim System II has one large weight pocket on each side. Systems with large silver stripes on the sides have been inspected or repaired and are not affected by this recall,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers have been advised to call DUI at (800) 325-8439 Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT or e-mail [email protected] to receive a free repair of the diving system.
