Cressi Regulators Recalled Due to Risk of Drowning

Cressi-sub USA, the manufacturer of the Cressi Ellipse Black MC5 Regulator, has recalled this product, because partial obstruction of the High Pressure (HP) port can produce inaccurate reading of the pressure guage resulting in a slow descent of the needle in the pressure gauage. The inaccurate reading of the pressure guage poses a hazard of drowning to the diver. This recall involves regulators used to control the flow of air while scuba diving making it possible for divers to breathe under water. The recalled regulators have model name Ellipse Black MC5. “Cressi MC5” and “Cressi Black” are printed on the regulator. Consumers should immediately discontinue using the regulators and return them to a Cressi authorized dive shop for a free repair. Consumers can also return the product to Cressi at One Charles Street, Westwood, N.J. 07675 or call Cressi for additional information at 800.338.9143 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at
