WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Oceanic USA, of San Leandro, Calif., is recalling about 24,700 Oceanic CDX first stage regulators used for scuba diving. Extreme vibration can occur within these CDX regulators, which can cause an air leakage underwater. Divers could run out of air and drown.

Oceanic has received six reports of noise or vibration accompanied by air leakage. No injuries have been reported.

That's pretty scarey, I wonder if the S.C.B.A. for fire fighters have any problems with their regulators?
