Step2 is recalling some models of their Little Helper’s children’s grocery shopping carts due to a laceration hazard, according to the CPSC.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the shopping cart’s basket can break into sharp pieces, which poses a hazard.

About 17,000 units were sold in the United States at BJ Wholesale Club, Kohl’s and other stores nationwide as well as online from May 2019 through October 2019.

The following models and color combinations have been recalled:

  • 700000 (blue basket with tan cart)
  • 708500 (pink basket with white cart)
  • 8567KL (pink basket with gray cart)

Step2 has received 22 reports of the cart baskets breaking, but no injuries have been reported.

If you have one of these shopping cart toys, contact Step2 for a free replacement or a refund in the form of a $40 credit toward the purchase of another Step2 product on their website.
