— The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday the voluntary recall of 466,000 above-ground pool ladders.

They were sold under the names "Intex", "Easy Set" and "Sand N Sun."

CPSC officials said the ladders' plastic steps could break if they are attached backwards.

Officials said there were 127 reports of injuries, including leg lacerations, bone fractures and ankle and back injuries.
