After two reports emerged of Boosted Boards spewing dense smoke from their batteries, the company issued a statement urging all riders to stop using the newer second-generation boards. Now, the electric skateboard maker is taking more drastic measures, working with consumer protection agencies in the US and Canada to issue a recall.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall on about 3,200 units of the 2nd Generation Boosted Dual+ electric skateboards with lithium-ion battery packs. The skateboards can be identified by the word “Boosted” laser printed on the wooden undercarriage and serial numbers that start with S2634 through S2644 on a white sticker on the bottom of the board.
