Werner brand aluminum ladders at Home Depot and Lowe's stores nationwide are being recalled due to the risk of breaking while in use. 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the ladders were sold at the two stores in April and May.

The commission says the ladders pose a fall hazard to those using them. 

Five models of the ladders are included in the recall:

Model # Date Codes Ladder Size
MT-IAA-13A 121744XX or 011844XX 13 feet
MT-IAA-17A 121744XX or 011844XX 17 feet
MT-IAA-22A 121744XX or 011844XX 22 feet
MT-IAA-26 121744XX or 011844XX 26 feet
MT-IAA-26A 121744XX or 011844XX 26 feet

The recalled ladders have a load capacity of 375 pounds.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says customers who have purchased these ladders should stop using them immediately and return them to the store for a refund.
