The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 170,800 Reliabilt Interior Bifold Doors manufactured by JELD-WEN. They can fall on home owners when a lower pivot pin breaks and doors disengage from overhead tracks.

So far, JELD-WEN is aware of 12 incidents of falling doors, including three incidents involving minor injuries.

The recalled doors, made in the U.S., were sold nationwide at Home Depot, Lowe’s, and other building products retailers from February 2011 to March 2012 for $40 to $80.

If you own a recalled door, stop using it and contact JELD-WEN to obtain free replacement hardware and technical assistance.
