XS Scuba has announced a recall of Miflex high pressure braided hoses that were sold after May 2009 throughout the United States and other countries. These hoses were sold as individual replacement high pressure gauge hoses – low pressure hoses are not included – and cascade hoses, deluxe cylinder equalizer (part number AC366), Miflex two gauge console (part numbers HL300 and HL300M), and Miflex rebreather kits.
Miflex high pressure hoses can be identified by a black nylon braided outer covering on the hose, with a hose diameter of approximately 1/4 inch (6mm), and a manufacturing stamping on the female fitting “MFX.”
