Tabata USA, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall on approximately 250 RS-670 scuba regulators due to a faulty chamber plug.  According to the CPSC, the first stage balance chamber plug can loosen from the scuba regulator causing a high-pressure leak and create unstable pressure, posing a drowning hazard to divers. 


Although no injuries have been reported, consumers should immediately stop using the scuba regulators and return the product to TUSA or an authorized dealer for a free inspection and replacement.


Manufactured in Japan, the units were sold in authorized TUSA distributors and diving and equipment stores nationwide from May 2009 through September 2009 for about $450.
