Werner Issues Urgent Safety Recall Of 78,000 Aluminum Ladders

Ladder manufacturer Werner is recalling around 78,000 telescoping aluminum ladders, saying the products can break underneath consumers during use and cause serious falls, the Consumer Safety Product Commission reports.

At Least 1 Injury Linked To Recalled Werner Ladder

At least one personal injury has already been reported; a ladder broke beneath a user, leading to injuries to their left side and elbow. Werner is telling costumers affected by the recall to return their ladders immediately to the retailer where it was purchased for a full refund. The ladders were sold through Lowe’s and Home Depot store between April 2018 and May 2018.

In all, Werner is recalling 78,000 ladders, representing 5 different models, all of which are being described as multipurpose telescoping aluminum ladders. The ladders all have a load capacity of 375 pounds, but each one can also be reconfigured to serve different uses:

  • stairway step ladder
  • wall ladder
  • scaffold base
  • twin step ladder
  • extension ladder

To find out if your Werner ladder has been recalled, check the label on the ladder’s rail for the following model numbers:

  • MT-IAA-17A (17 feet)
  • MT-IAA-22A (22 feet)
  • MT-IAA-26 (26 feet)

The recalled ladders bear one of two date codes, 121744XX or 011844XX, which are stamped into the metal on the inside of the ladder’s leg.

Werner Offers Full Refund

Werner is offering full refunds for the recalled ladders. Return your model to the store where you bought it for more details.
