CPSC and Louisville Ladder Inc. Announce Recall


Recommended Posts


Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Louisville Ladder Inc., of Louisville, KY announced a voluntary recall (#06-038) of approximately 3,000 multi-purpose, step-to-straight, combination, manhole and extension trestle ladders made by Louisville Ladder that were sold at industrial supply stores and home centers between November 2004 and June 2005 for between $75 and $235.

According to Louisville Ladder, there is the possibility that the rungs on the ladders could break near the side rail, causing users to fall. So far, the company has received two reports of rung failure but nobody has been injured.

The ladders are type 1A industrial ladders with fiberglass rails and round aluminum rungs and the recall effects 14 different ladder models, a chart of which can be seen on the CPSC site. All model number and manufacturing dates are located inthe model number/notice label on the side rails of the ladders, except for models FA1012 and FA1016 which have the date code on the metal wraparound adjacent to the hinges.

Louisville Ladder says that consumers should stop using these ladders immediately and immediately call Louisville Ladder for an inspection and replacement of the ladder if necessary.

For additional information, contact Louisville Ladder at (800) 660-4356 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at www.louisvilleladder.com.
