The ladders can break while in use, posing a fall hazard to the user.

Werner is recalling five models of aluminum telescoping ladders with five different configurations: twin step ladder, stairway step ladder, extension ladder, wall ladder and as two scaffold bases. The date code is stamped on the inside of the outer leg of the ladder beneath the bottom step. The model number is printed on a label located on the side of the ladder rail.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ladders and return the ladder to the store of purchase to receive a full refund. Werner has received one report of a ladder breaking while being used, resulting in injury to the user.

The recalled ladders were sold at  Home Depot and Lowe’s stores nationwide from April 2018 through May 2018 for between $180 and $275.
