Major ladder manufacturer Werner has recalled five ladder models, citing a fall hazard. The ladders, sold as multipurpose telescoping aluminum ladders, can break during use, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), creating the risk of a serious fall. The ladders in question were just released to the market in April 2018, but Werner has already received at least one report of an injury, wherein the ladder broke beneath a consumer, leaving them with injuries to their left side and elbow.
