Roughly 1.6 million magnetic dry erase boards have been recalled, following dozens of reports involving problems where the metal surface separated, resulting in dozens of injuries and lacerations.
The Write Again magnetic dry erase white boards recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 27, due to the risk that manufacturing defects may allow the sharp metal surface to separate from the product’s wooden board.
If the magnetic dry erase board separates, the sharp metal edge is exposed, placing consumers at risk for finger and hand lacerations. At least 40 injury reports have already been confirmed nationwide.
The recall involves Write Again brand dry erase boards that were sold in several sizes including 9 by 12 double sided board with SKU number 152277, 9 by 12 inches’ single sided with SKU number 136110, 12 by 18 inches with SKU number 152211, and 6 by 9 inches with SKU number 301800. The affected products are marked with Lot numbers with the last four digits ranging from 0903 through 1115. The boards were sold either individually or in a pack of six.
The recalled dry erase boards were manufactured in China by Really Good Stuff, LLC, of Monroe, Connecticut and sold through Really Good Stuff catalogs nationwide and online at www.reallygoodstuff.com from March 2003 through April 2017 for between $10 and $47 for individuals and for sets of six.
Customers are being asked to stop using the recalled dry erase boards immediately and to contact the manufacturer at 800-801-4046 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to receive a free replacement board.
