Vernon Hills, Illinois-based Rust-Oleum Corp. is recalling nearly 2,000 cans of paint last week after its Black Satin Countertop Coating was found to have excessive levels of lead.

The product number and batch codes are printed on the bottom of the cans, with the recalled product listing product number 263209 and batch code P7612D.

The recall, issued on Aug. 30 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, says that consumers “should immediately stop using the recalled countertop coating and contact Rust-Oleum.
