PhotoPlycem USA of Houston, Texas, is recalling about 37,500 boards of Allura decking.

The decking can deteriorate and crack, causing the deck surfacing to break. Consumers can fall through broken decking and suffer serious injuries.

The company has received three reports of the decking cracking, resulting in one report of a leg injury to a man whose leg went through the cracked decking.

The recall involves Allura fiber cement decking and fascia sold in 12-foot lengths that are 6 inches wide and one inch thick, and came in two styles: a hidden fastener application and a direct screw application.

The recalled Allura fiber cement fascia, which was for vertical applications only, was sold in 12-foot lengths, is 8- and 12-inches wide and 7/16 inches thick.

The decking and fascia were sold in a natural wood color with a wood grain texture. There are no labels or other identifying marks on the decking materials.

The decking, manufactured in Costa Rica, was sold at Kelseyville Lumber and Trademark Exteriors as stock items and at Home Depot as a special order item from February 2014, through June 2017, for between $25 to $30 per board for the decking and about $25 to $40 per board for the fascia.
