NEW YORK (AP) — Acco Brands Corp. is recalling about 3.3 million wall-mounted dry erase boards after customers said they cut their hands, fingers and feet while removing the board from a wall.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says metal can be exposed when the board is taken down from a wall. Seven people reported injuries and four of them required stitches.

The boards were sold under the Quartet brand at Ace Hardware, Office Depot and other stores between 2005 and 2013. They come in several colors and sizes and cost between $5 and $10.

Acco, an office supplies manufacturer in Lake Zurich, Illinois, says customers should wear heavy gloves when removing the boards. Customers can contact the company for a caution label on how to safely remove the board.
