    Posted: 07 Oct 2009 at 03:14

The following recalls have been announced:

___

About 20,300 pieces of Halcyon Scuba diving equipment, manufactured in the United States by Halcyon Manufacturing Inc. of High Springs, Fla., because the over-pressure valves on BCDs and other inflatable devices could fail, allowing the devices to leak. This poses a drowning hazard. No incidents have been reported. The equipment was sold by dive retailers and distributors between January 2006 and December 2008. Details: by phone at 800-425-2966; by Web at http://www.halcyon.net/opv-recall or http://www.cpsc.gov.

___

About 900 Guardian full-face masks, manufactured in the United States by Undersea Systems International Inc., doing business as Ocean Technology Systems of Santa Ana, Calif. The masks are recalled because the visor can dislodge if significant pressure is applied vertically to the top and bottom of the clamp. This would cause the mask to flood. The company has received three reports of dislodged visors, but no reports of injuries. The masks were sold by diving equipment retailers around the country and through direct sales between March 2009 and August 2009. Details: by phone at 877-270-1984; by Web at http://www.otscomm.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

___

About 620,000 pressure washers and 72,000 air compressors, manufactured in the United States by DeVilbiss Air Power Co. of Jackson, Tenn., because the plastic hubs on the pneumatic tires can burst. The company previously recalled the pressure washers and air compressors in 2006 after receiving more than 26 reports of injuries. The company has since received additional injury reports, including hand and finger fractures and cuts, as well as minor property damage. The recalled items were sold at hardware stores and home centers around the country. the pressure washers were available between January 2004 and November 2005. The air compressors were available between December 2004 and October 2006. Details: by phone at 866-323-9867; by Web at http://www.devap.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

About 84,000 folding directors chairs, manufactured in Indonesia and imported by L G Sourcing Inc. of North Wilkesboro, N.C., because the back supports can break. There have been 10 reports of broken chairs, but no reports on injuries. The chairs were sold at Lowe's stores around the country between June 2009 and July 2009. Details: by Web at http://www.lowes.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

A recall election (also called a recall referendum or representative recall) is a procedure by which voters can remove an elected official from office through a direct vote before his or her term has ended. Recalls, which are initiated when sufficient voters sign a petition, have a history dating back to the ancient Athenian democracy and is a feature of several contemporary constitutions.
