Werner has recalled five models of aluminum ladders.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 78,000 ladders are being recalled because the ladders can break while in use, posing a fall hazard.

There has been one report of a ladder breaking while in use, which resulted in a person being injured, according to CPSC.

The ladders were sold in April and May at Home Depot and Lowe's stores nationwide. Click here to view a list of the model numbers being recalled.
