Werner is recalling about 78,000 multi-purpose telescoping ladders which can break while in use, causing the person on them to fall.

The aluminum ladders range from 13 to 26 feet and were sold at Home Depot and Lowe's in April and May, 2018, for $180 to $275.

The ladders are designed to be used in multiple positions.

Werner received one report of a ladder breaking, injuring the user's left side and elbow.

Owners should return them to the store for a full refund.
