After many months of safety warnings and reports of fires caused by hoverboards, 10 manufacturers, distributors and retailers have finally issued an official recall of 501,000 hoverboards in the U.S. coordinated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The recall impacts the biggest hoverboard brands on the market, including Swagway (the Swagway X1 model), the Hovertrax from Razor, the Airwalk Self Balancing Electric Scooter, the iMoto, the Hype Roam, the Wheeli, 2Wheelz, Back to the Future, Mobile Tech, Hover Shark, NWS, X Glider and X Rider.

Additionally, retailer Overstock.com is recalling all hoverboards sold on its website, which amounts to 4,300 in all. Similarly, Boscov's, a retailer based in Reading, Pennsylvania, is recalling 1,300 Orbit hoverboards.
