Hoverboard makers could soon get hit with recalls if they don't get their act together.

That's the warning the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued to manufacturers, importers and retailers.

The letter warned if safety standards aren't met, the agency will issue recalls.

Some models are prone to catching fire and exploding.

Queens University, Appalachian State University and the University Of South Carolina banned hoverboards to some capacity. The boards are also banned in the Carolina Panthers locker room.

Several airlines have also banned the boards on flights because of their batteries.
