Recall Notice Of Omersub Zero Cubed Masks
Technosport has issued a recall notice via the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for 2,600 of its Omersub Zero Cubed Masks which were sold in the USA.
The company explained that with the note saying “Non-conforming glass was used for the lens, which can shatter posing an injury hazard”. By June 30, Technosport cited 12 incidents where a lens had shattered, although no injuries have been reported. The issue was specific to versions of the mask sold prior to November 2012 which have a shiny facial skirt. Models sold after November 2012 have a matte facial skirt.
Later it turned out that this issue affects masks sold also outside the US, even though the US was the main market for this product. Omer has launched a process of changing the masks in its dealer network worldwide but later proved that the broken lenses were the result of the mask falling or breaking in the dive bag, eventually due to weights hitting the lenses. No injury whatsoever has been caused to freedivers, scuba divers or spearfishers. Omer is issuing new masks that will have thicker lenses to correct the issue.
To obtain a replacement mask, you can call Technosport toll-free in the USA at +1-800-853-1911 between 10am and 6pm Eastern time Monday through Friday, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , go to the company website or contact your local Omersub representative.
