Step2 Recalls 17,000 Children’s Grocery Shopping Cart Toys Due to Cutting Hazard
Update: I got my replacement today!
A nationwide toy company has issued a voluntary recall on thousands of children’s toy grocery shopping carts due to the potential hazard, namely, a cutting hazard. Step2 has issued this recall, because these toy shopping carts may not meet their durability standards and prematurely break, posing a potential safety risk.
If the shopping cart has a date code combination of “5” and “19”, immediately stop using the shopping cart. See the example below.
The shopping cart’s basket can break into sharp pieces, posing a laceration hazard. There have been 22 reports of the carts breaking, but no injuries.
These toys were sold at BJ Wholesale Club, Kohl’s and other stores nationwide and online at Step2.com from May 2019 through October 2019.
