Salt Lake City, UT-based Huish Outdoors is recalling Oceanic Adult Dry Top Snorkels sold exclusively at Costco, citing the risk for drowning, according to a statement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The recall involves about 76,000 units of Oceanic Adult Dry Top Snorkels.
According to the agency, the bottom purge valve on the recalled snorkels could leak for unexpected water entry, posing a drowning hazard.
The recall was initiated after Oceanic received 13 reports of the snorkels leaking. One injury involving minor cuts to a consumer who tripped after a snorkel leaked was reported.
The recalled items were sold at Costco Wholesale Warehouses in the U.S. and online at costco.com from February 2021 through July 2021 for about $40.
The snorkels are white and gray with a blue plastic housing around an oval-shaped, clear rubber bottom purge valve and a blue dry splash guard located at the top of the snorkel.
The snorkel measures about 16.5 inches tall. The affected four-digit batch numbers are between 2038 and 2051 and between 2102 and 2115.
Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled snorkels and follow the instructions online at oceanicsnorkel.com to destroy the product and register for a free replacement snorkel, shipping included.
