The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Louisiana-Pacific, have announced a voluntary recall of about 48 million linear feet composite decks.

The recall includes outdoor deck board and railings sold under the brand names LP WeatherBest, ABTCo., and Veranda. They are composite products that look similar to natural wood and were sold in various colors including Tuscan Walnut/Chestnut, Driftwood Grey/Greystone, Pacific Cedar and Western Redwood. Veranda decking products were manufactured by multiple firms; only products manufactured by LP are included in this recall. The recalled decking can prematurely deteriorate and unexpectedly break. Consumers can fall through broken decking and suffer serious injuries.

LP has received 37 reports of composite decks breaking, resulting in 14 injuries, including a broken wrist, sprained ankle, minor lacerations and bruises.
