Toy grocery carts usually aren’t thought of as dangerous to children. But that’s why three models of the Step 2 Little Helper’s children’s grocery shopping carts, 20,000 of them in the United States and Canada, have been recalled.
The problem, as stated in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice: “The shopping cart’s basket can break into sharp pieces, posing a laceration hazard.”
Step 2 has heard about 22 reports of the basket breaking, but no injuries.
This covers model Nos. 700000, 708500 and 8567KL with date code combinations of 5 and 19, which can be found below the handle.
