Diving Equipment Recalled by Halcyon Manufacturing Due to Drowning Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Halcyon Diving Equipment, announced a voluntary recall on October 1 of Halcyon diving equipment. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
This recall involves Halcyon diving equipment including the Halcyon Explorer, Eclipse, CCR35, Evolve and Pioneer Buoyancy Compensator Devices (BCDs) and Halcyon Surface Marker Buoys (SMBs), Lift Bags, Diver Alert Markers (DAMs) Surf Shuttle and Diver Lift Raft Inflatable Devices. “Halcyon” is printed on the diving equipment.
The over pressure valves (OPVs) in the diving equipment could fail allowing the buoyancy compensator devices (BCDs) and the diver lift inflatable devices to leak, posing a drowning hazard to divers.

The United States Fire Administration recommends everyone should have a comprehensive fire protection plan that includes smoke alarms, residential sprinklers, and practicing a home fire escape plan.
