A limited number of Oceanic BCDs were assembled using defective QLR4 weight pockets and can pose a drowning hazard to users. There have been several incidents reported of handles failing and we recommend that dealers, distributors, and end users take all necessary precautions when dealing with life support equipment.
To determine if the BCD you purchased or have in your possession is affected by this voluntary recall, any Oceanpro, Excursion, or Hera BCD with serial numbers within 608262-695909, 1170357-1180342, 1200001-1200070, 20031001-22082698, and have a QLR4 handle that DOES NOT contain a date code on the underside, needs to stop use or stop sale if still at a retail location immediately. Furthermore, if you have purchased QLR4 weight pockets since 07/2019 that do not have a date code, they are also affected by this recall and should be replaced as soon as possible.
