Huish Outdoors has issued a recall on more than 1,400 Zeagle brand Grace and Element Buoyancy Control Devices (BCDs). BCDs are used to help a diver maintain buoyancy under water during scuba diving.

The buoyancy control devices can suddenly leak air causing a loss of flotation, posing a drowning hazard to scuba divers.

The firm has received one report of a seam failure in the BCD resulting in air leakage, but no injuries have been reported, to date.

The Grace model is black with light green accents, and has the logo Z/Grace on the right side pocket and left shoulder. The words Zeagle Sport are on the left side pocket.

The Element model is black with red accents and has the logo Z/Element on the right side pocket and left shoulder. The words Zeagle Sport are on the left side pocket.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled BCDs and return them to Huish Outdoors or an authorized Zeagle dealer for a free replacement.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Huish Outdoors toll-free at (888) 270- 8595.
