Snorkels sold at Costco recalled over drowning hazard
Tens of thousands of snorkels sold exclusively at Costco are being recalled because they pose a drowning hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Huish Outdoors recalled approximately 76,000 Oceanic Adult Dry Top Snorkels, which customers should stop using and destroy "immediately," CPSC said.
According to the agency, the bottom purge valve on the recalled products "can leak, allowing unexpected water entry."

To date, there have already been 13 reports of the snorkels leaking, according to the agency. One reported case involved "minor cuts to a consumer who tripped after a snorkel leaked," CPSC said.
