Recall On Deck Boards Sold At The Home Depot
Plycem is recalling approximately 37,500 deck boards because the materials can crack.
According to WPRI 12, Plycem received three separate injury reports involving the recalled decking. One report involved a leg injury with a man whose leg went through a cracked board.
The recall covers Allura fiber cement decking and fascia. They were sold at The Home Depot.
The cement decking comes in two different styles. The first is a direct screw application and the second is a hidden fastener application. They were both sold in 12-foot lengths and are 6-inches wide and one-inch thick.
"The fiber cement fascia is sold in 12-foot lengths and is 8-to 12-inches wide and 7/16 inches thick. Both the decking and fascia are sold in a natural wood color and have a wood grain texture."
Consumers who bought the recalled decking boards are advised to stop using the materials and should contact Plycem to schedule a free repair.
