Rust-Oleum recalls countertop coating due to lead violation

Rust-Oleum has recalled containers of its black satin countertop coating because it contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead paint ban, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced.

The recall includes about 1,800 one-quart containers of the coating with the product number 263209 and the batch code P7612D. The number and code are printed on the bottom of the can.

The silver can with a green and white label says, “countertop coating,” “black satin,” “renew laminate surfaces” and “moisture & scratch resistant.”

Cans were sold at stores across the U.S. and online at Amazon.com, Homedepot.com and Walmart.com from June 2017 to February 2018.

People who have purchased the product should stop using it and contact Rust-Oleum at 1-800-908-4050 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Rust-Oleum can also be reached by email at rustoleumcountertoprecall@rustoleum.com or online at www.rustoleum.com and click on “Recalls.”

Consumers who haven’t used the countertop coating will receive a full refund plus $25.

Consumers who have already applied the coating will receive a repair kit or replacement of the affected surfaces.

No injuries or incidents have been reported, according to the CPSC.
