New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Hollis have announced a voluntary recall on July 11, 2013 of Hollis DG03 dive computers because of drowning risks posed to consumers.
The Hollis dive computers were recalled after discovering that when it is used with an optional integrated transmitter, it can malfunction and display an incorrect tank pressure reading to the diver. This could result in the diver unknowingly depleting their air supply based on the reading and drown.
“The recall includes Hollis brand DG03 dive computers with serial numbers 100 through 1142 that may be used with integrated transmitters that monitor tank pressure. The round black 2-1/2 inch diameter computer has a digital screen and is worn on the diver’s wrist like a watch. The name of the product, Hollis DG03, is printed on the front of the unit and the serial number is printed on the back of the unit. These computers allow scuba divers to measure the time and depth of a dive. Only dive computers with software labeled Revision 1A, viewed on the computer’s display are included in the recall,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled dive computers until the unit’s operating system is upgraded to revision 1B. The upgrade can be found on Hollis’ website or by contracting an authorized Hollis dealer for assistance.
