Kadant Composites and CPSC Recall Decking Material


Recommended Posts

August 19, 2005

Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), along with Kadant Composites Inc. of Bedford, MA, issued a recall notice (#05-247) for all GeoDeckâ„¢ decking and railing materials manufactured between April 2002 and October 2003.

Apparently, the product degrades when exposed to hot temperatures and sunlight and the manufacturer has received about 370 reports of accelerated degradation. The concern is that the deteriorating material could break, causing consumers to fall and be injured.

According to the official notice, which can be seen at this link, consumers are advised to check the GeoDeckâ„¢ material for visible cracks on the surface and see if it can be easily scratched with a fingernail or credit card. If so, contact GeoDeckâ„¢ customer service at 1-800-547-1710 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the GeoDeckâ„¢ website at http://www.KadantCompositesRecall.com.
