Youth Snorkeling Masks Recalled

Martinique LX Jr. is recalling approximately 44,000 youth snorkeling mask sets as it has been discovered that notches in the tempered glass lens can break under certain water pressure, posing a laceration hazard to the user. To date, the firm has received eight reports of the lens cracking, four of which include cuts and scratches to the face.

The masks, sold exclusively at Costco Wholesale stores from November 2010 through July 2011, were sold in a set with snorkel and fins. The masks feature a silicone face skirt, strap and adjustable buckles. The mask is blue with a silver accent piece that frames the tempered glass lens. The U.S. Divers logo is on the upper bridge of the mask as well as inset on the tempered glass lens. The lens is also labeled as tempered. The buckles are each printed with the U.S. Divers “wave” logo.

Consumers should contact U.S. Divers for a replacement mask.
