As a precaution, Mitre 10 is conducting a recall for this product sold exclusively in Mitre 10 and True Value Hardware stores nationally prior to 28 January 2015.

Labelling on the ladder indicates that the Ladder complies with AS/NZS 1892.

A test indicates that the ladder does not comply with that Australian Standard.
