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.

Recalled Models & Product Numbers

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:
