PhotoRust-Oleum of Vernon Hills, Ill., is recalling about 1,800 containers of Rust-Oleum black satin countertop coating.

The coating contains levels of lead that exceed the federal lead paint ban. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves one-quart (32 fluid-oz.) containers of Rust-Oleum black satin countertop coating with product number 263209 and batch code P7612D.

The product number and batch code are printed on the bottom of the can. The can is silver and the label on the can is green and white.

The label on the can reads “countertop coating,” “black satin,” “renew laminate surfaces,” and “moisture & scratch resistant.”

The countertop coating, manufactured in the U.S., was sold at Ace Hardware and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Homedepot.com and Walmart.com from June 2017, through February 2018, for about $20.
