The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of about 1,800 containers of Rust-Oleum black satin countertop coating.  The countertop coating contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead paint ban. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

What's the problem?

This recall involves one-quart (32 fluid ounce) containers of Rust-Oleum black satin countertop coating with product number 263209 and batch code P7612D.  The product number and batch code are printed on the bottom of the can. The can is silver and the label on the can is green and white. The label on the can reads "countertop coating," "black satin," "renew laminate surfaces," and "moisture & scratch resistant." 

What happens next?

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled countertop coating and contact Rust-Oleum. Consumers who have not used the countertop coating will receive a full refund plus $25 to return the product to Rust-Oleum. Consumers who have applied the recalled countertop coating will receive a repair kit or replacement of the affected surfaces.

The product was sold at Ace Hardware and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Homedepot.com and Walmart.com from June 2017 through February 2018 for about $20.

Consumers with questions can contact Rust-Oleum at (800) 908-4050 referencing recall number 18-214.
