    U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
    Office of Information and Public Affairs
    Washington, DC 20207

    Release #07-117

    Firm's Recall Hotline: (888) 854-4960

    Pelagic Recalls Digital Dive Computers Due to Decompression Hazard

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in
    cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary
    recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using
    recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

    Name of product: Oceanic and AERIS Digital Dive Computers

    Units: About 2,800

    Manufacturer: Pelagic Pressure Systems, of San Leandro, Calif.

    Hazard: When performing a switch from one gas to another during a dive,
    the dive computer's display will lock up and not return to the main dive
    screen that displays dive times. This can cause divers to enter
    decompression unknowingly or the diver could ascend prematurely,
    resulting in decompression sickness.

    Incidents/Injuries: Pelagic has received a report of two dive computers
    malfunctioning. No injuries have been reported.

    Description and Models: The recall involves Oceanic-brand ATOM 2.0 dive
    computers with serial numbers 1 through 2,079 (Revisions 2E, 3A, and 3B)
    and AERIS-brand EPIC dive computers with serial numbers 1 through 712
    (Revision 1A), which can be accessed and viewed on the computer's
    display. Also, the serial number and date of manufacture are printed on
    the bottom of the unit (Oceanic ATOM 2.0 from August 23 to November 23,
    2006, and AERIS EPIC from October 18 to November 14, 2006). This recall
    does not include any other Oceanic or AERIS brand dive computers.

    Sold at: Authorized Oceanic dealers sold ATOM 2.0 dive computers
    nationwide from August 2006 through February 2007. Authorized AERIS
    dealers sold EPIC dive computers nationwide from October 2006 through
    February 2007. Both computers sold for between $670 and $950.

    Manufactured in: United States

    Remedy: Consumers should stop using the recalled dive computers and take
    them to an authorized Oceanic or AERIS dealer to get a free software
    upgrade.

    Consumer Contact: Contact Pelagic toll-free at (888) 854-4960 between 8
    a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, send an email to
    service@oceanicusa.com, or write to: Pelagic Pressure Systems, 2002
    Davis Street, San Leandro, CA 94577. Information is also posted on the
    Oceanic and AERIS Web sites (www.OceanicWorldwide.com and
    www.diveaeris.com).

    recalled products, please go to:

    Maybe these should all be turned into 'stickies' in these 3 forums.

    Ah, thanks. I didn't know where to post this info. Does a moderator have to move them, or is that something I should learn to do?

    A moderator is required - but if these were 'stickies' they'd be at the top of the forum page all the time, and easy to see. Just my suggestion - a mod would have to place them that way AFAIK.

    There's been a number of good samaratan repostings of the info; a sticky might help people find it as well as stop the duplicate postings.

    I've just posted this suggestion into the support forum (http://www.scubaboard.com/showthread...99#post2728299). Let's see if anything happens. It's a good idea, WarmWaterDiver.
