Manufacturer Poseidon of Sweden and U.S. distributors Poseidon West, of West Lake Village, Calif., Poseidon Central, of Conroe, Texas, and American Divers Division, of Alexandria Bay, N.Y., have announced a voluntary recall of defective Poseidon Besea W50 Diving Wings.

The inner bladder located inside the diving wing can break, causing the wing to fail to operate as a floating/buoyancy device, which poses a drowning hazard to the user. Poseidon has received 15 reports of inner bladders breaking. No injuries have been reported.

The recall affects the following Poseidon Besea W50 Diving Wings: that contain inner bladders with batch number 5445. The inner bladder is located inside the outer cover of the wing. The batch number and “Poseidon” are molded on a tab located between the “legs” of the inner bladder. The device was sold through Poseidon dealers nationwide from September 2007 through June 2008 for about $366.

If you have Poseidon wings that contain the recalled inner bladders then contact Poseidon for a free replacement.
