A defective computer that poses a risk to scuba divers is being recalled by its manufacturer.

Scubapro has voluntarily recalled Galileo Luna and Sol Dive Computers. A short circuit can cause the dive computer's screen to freeze or display inaccurate information. This poses a risk of serious injury to the underwater diver, including decompression sickness.

The company has received three reports of the screens freezing. No injuries have been reported.

Only dive computers with certain serial numbers are included in the recall. Recalled Galileo Luna dive computers have serial numbers 150422 0058 001 to 150903 0338 005 while the impacted Galileo SOL dive computers bear serial numbers 150423 0202 001 to 150921 0001 005. The serial number is stamped on the back of the computer and printed on a label on the product packaging.

About 1,500 computers are including in the recall.

Consumers could purchase these items at authorized Scubapro dealers nationwide from May 2015 through January 2016 for between $700 and $1,200.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dive computers and contact Scubapro to arrange for a free replacement.
