About 34,000 above-ground pool ladders are being recalled because they pose a fall danger to users.
The Canadian recall applies to the Intex, Easy Set and Sand N Sun A-frame ladders in the following sizes:
- 4.58m x 1.22m
- 4.88m x 1.07m
- 4.88m x 1.22m
- 5.50m x 1.22m
- 7.32m x 1.33m
The manufacturer, Intex Development Co., notes that if the ladder steps are assembled improperly the steps can break.
The company has received three unconfirmed reports of the ladders breaking during use, causing minor injuries.
The ladders were sold at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club in Canada from February 2006 through February 2007 for between $250 to $900, depending on size.
Consumers should stop using the ladders and contact the company for a free replacement.
