HI Guys, I recieved this email last night, looks important..
Dear Valued Oceanic Customer,

In the interest of safety and customer service, we are sending you this email
containing details on the voluntary safety recall of the Oceanic CDX First Stage

As this message is being sent to our entire database, we understand that you
are likely not directly affected by this recall.  However, we hope that as a
valued customer you can help us to get the word out to someone that is.  Please
feel free to pass this information on to other divers, dive clubs, dive shops,
and charter boats.

CPSC, Oceanic USA Announce Recall of Scuba Regulators  
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Oceanic
USA, of San Leandro, Calif., is voluntarily recalling all Oceanic CDX first stage
regulators used for scuba diving. Extreme vibration, a high oscillation of the
internal components, can occur for an unknown reason within these CDX regulators,
which can cause an air leakage underwater. Divers could run out of air and drown.
Oceanic has received reports of noise or vibration accompanied by air leakage.
No injuries have been reported.

Oceanic CDX first stage regulators subject to the recall have serial numbers
ranging from 9200001 to 9205622, 0200001 to 0213294, 0D0001 to 0D3046, 9800013
to 9801711, or 9D0001 to 9D3273. The serial number is stamped into the side of
the Body. These CDX regulators were sold with various second stage regulators,
including the Alpha 7, Delta 3, Gamma 2, and Zeta. This voluntary recall does
not apply to the CDX5 or any other Oceanic regulator.

Consumers should stop using the recalled CDX regulators immediately and take
them to any Authorized Oceanic Dealer for a Retrofit that consists of replacement
of one part and the addition of another. Click HERE to locate the Authorized
Oceanic Dealer closest to you.

It has been out for a while, but at LIDS yesterday, the woman I spoke to at Oeanic said ALL Alpha7/CDXs needed to be returned, regardless of serial number.

Guess which reg I have...

Going to phone tomorrow to confirm.
