Ladders Recalled for Fall Hazard

Ladders designed to be used in walk-in closets are being recalled because they could unexpectedly break and cause consumers to fall, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Dillon Davis is recalling nearly 38,000 Frontgate closet ladders because of the fall hazards. The products included in the recall are “Frontgate foldaway closet two- and three-step ladders. The ladders are made of mahogany wood and designed for use in walk-in closets. Catalog item numbers included in the recall are 11998 for the two-step and 11675, 11975, 30269, 37935 and 40645 for the three-step ladder,” according to news reports.

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I urge consumers to stop using these ladders to avoid personal injury to themselves or others. If the ladders break while being used, you could be seriously injured. Consumers with this recalled product can contact Frontgate to receive instructions on how to receive a merchandise credit for the amount of the ladder. Frontgate said they will also be contacting known consumers. For more information, contact Frontgate at (888) 298-4651 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their recall website.

If you have been injured by a product recall, contact a personal injury lawyer in Seattle.
