"PADI Americas recently discovered printer errors in certain Recreational Dive Planners (RDPs) distributed worldwide by PADI Offices. The misprints may occur in six versions of the Recreational Dive Planner (English language only). PADI Americas’ printer is working diligently with PADI Americas to correct these errors.
These tables may be included in Open Water and Enriched Air Crew Paks, book and table combinations, CD-ROM combinations and ala carte tables shipped during the latter part of 2002. Please note that not all RDPs you may have received during this period contain printer errors.
PADI initiated the recall to PADI Americas and PADI Canada last week but today, erring on the side of caution, has decided to expand the recall to PADI territories worldwide.
While analysis of the problems shows that the risk of injury from the error is remote and no injuries have been reported, for the sake of safety, we feel a broad approach to this issue should be taken. We ask that you immediately check your existing inventory and remove any RDPs you received with the product numbers and production codes listed below. All RDPs included in this recall bear the printing mark “Printed in the USA” located on the back of the table, upper right corner. The product number and production code is generally located on the lower right corner, also on the back of the table. The product number and production code consists of a series of numbers and letters resembling:
Product No. 60049 010PDJ2.
In checking the production code for inaccurate tables, please ignore the first three digits and only check the last four. The product number and production code may be transposed on some tables. There may also be a revision date (Rev 10/02) and/or version number (Version 1.0) listed. These numbers are inconsequential.
