WASHINGTON (NBC) -- More than 500,000 hoverboards have been recalled nationwide due to a risk of overheating and exploding.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says ten companies are recalling 501,000 hoverboards sold across the country over lithium-ion batteries that pose a risk of overheating and exploding.
At least 99 incidents of overheated battery packs have been reported to the CPSC: including some with burn injuries and property damage.
The hoverbaords were sold at mass merchandisers nationwide and online retailers from June 2015 through May 2016 for between $350 and $900.
Consumers contact the recalling company to return their hoverboard for a full refund, a free repair or a free replacement depending on the model.
