According to the Nov. 12 recall alert, the Rialto, Calif.-based company has received four reports of incidents where the user fell off the ladder. No injuries have been reported.

This recall specifically the VidaXL stainless steel A-frame pool ladders with item numbers 93122 and 93188. You can find this number printed alongside the VidaXL.com logo on the horizontal bar of the A-frame.

The ladders were manufactured in China and sold online at vidaxl.com from February 2021 through August 2021 for about $90.

If you own a recalled ladder, you should stop using it and contact VidaXL for instructions on how to destroy the product to receive a full refund. The company is contacting all known purchasers directly, telling consumers to remove and dispose of two of the ladder’s steps to render the product unusable.
