Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Folding Ladders are subject to this recall:

  • Syneco Multi-Purpose Folding Ladder, 3.7 meter in length and composed of aluminium; stated 150 kilogram load capacity; item number: 0860243; I/N 0860243 & BC 7340200928111

According to the ACCC, recent tests in accordance with the Australian safety standard for ladders (AS/NZS 1982.1:1996) showed the recalled Folding Ladders failed to meet the requirements for ladders with the rated loading capacity of 150 kilograms. The actual maximum safe loading capacity for the ladder is 120 kilograms. Using the ladders to support loads greater than 120 kilograms may result in fall injuries.
