CPSC, Keller Announce Recall of Certain Model Industrial Fiberglass Extension Ladders

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Keller Industries of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is recalling 29,691 Industrial Type I and Industrial Heavy Duty Type IA fiberglass extension ladders. A support brace located on the ladder's base section could interfere with the operation of the rung locks. If the brace interferes with the locks, the ladder may appear to be securely locked in place when it is not. As a result the ladder could collapse causing a person standing on the ladder to fall and be seriously injured.

Keller Industries sold the ladders under the brand names "Keller" and "Columbia". The following ladders are subject to the Safety Recalls,
