(Best Syndication News) - Folding step stools sold exclusively at Home Depot stores are being recalled because the top platform could break while being used. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall issued by Tricam Industries Inc., of Eden Prairie, Minnesota today.

Around 84,000 step stools are being recalled. The Easy Reach by Gorilla Ladders 3-Step Pro Series were sold exclusively at Home Depot stores nationwide between April 2012 through August 2012 at a price around $27.

Tricam received five reports of the top platform of the stepladder breaking. One person reported receiving scrapes and abrasions from the fall.

The model number being recalled is the HB3-PRO, also known as the Easy Reach by Gorilla Ladders 3-Step Pro Series step stool. The model number is located on a blue label under the middle step of the ladder.

Only the model numbers that have the letter “J” stamped on the underside of the top step and on the bottom of the tool holder are being recalled. The stool consists of three plastic steps, a steel tubular frame, and a plastic tool holder. The step stool also has a rating of 225 pounds.

Consumers who have the recalled stepladder should stop using it and contact Tricam Industries to get a full refund. The company can be called toll-free at (855) 336-0360, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday. Tricam also has a website at http://tricamindustries.com/recall/ with more information about the product safety recall.
