Snorkel masks recalled


The U.S. Consumer Protection Safety Commission issued a recall for two U.S. Divers brand snorkel masks sold from 2010 to 2012.

The problem, the CPSC said, is notches in the tempered glass lens on the mask can break under certain water pressure, posing a laceration hazard to the user.

The recall includes Martinique LX Jr. Youth Snorkeling Mask Sets, sold exclusively at Costco between November 2010 and July 2011 for about $30 and Santa Cruz Jr. Youth Snorkeling Masks, sold at Academy, Dick’s, Sports Authority and other sporting goods stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and other Internet retailers from March 2011 through July 2012 for about $10 individually and $30 as a set.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled masks and contact U.S. Divers for a replacement mask.
