VidaXL Recalls Ladders for Above-ground Pools Due to Fall and Drowning Hazards

VidaXL of Rialto, Calif. recalled about 3,200 VidaXL steel pool ladders due to potential safety risk.

The steps can loosen during use, posing fall and drowning hazards.

The firm has received four reports of falls off the pool ladders. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves two models of VidaXL stainless steel pool ladders.

The ladders measure 47 inches for above-ground pools, with item numbers (SKU) 93122 and 93188 printed alongside the vidaXL.com logo on the horizontal bar in the A-frame.

The ladders have an A-shape and attach over the above-ground pool edge. There are two gray or blue non-skid plastic steps on each side of the ladder.

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

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pool ladders and contact VidaXL for a full refund.

The firm is contacting all purchasers directly and will instruct consumers to remove two of the ladder’s steps and dispose of the steps and ladder in the trash.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
