Werner has voluntarily recalled about 78,000 aluminum telescoping ladders due to the risk of failure. The recalled ladders reportedly have defects that can cause them to break while they are in use. The Werner ladder recall affects multi-purpose aluminum telescoping ladders that were sold at Home Depot and Lowe’s stores across the U.S. from April 2018 to May 2018.
Werner has not released details about the nature of the defect. The company has also not stated whether it has received any additional injury reports since announcing the recall in June 2018.
