The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Step2, has announced a voluntary recall of about 14,000 Whisper Ride Touring Wagons™ because the removable blue seat backs can detach and allow the child in the wagon to fall out, posing a fall hazard.
Step2 has received 29 reports of the seat back detaching, 28 of which resulted in children falling out of the wagon. Fourteen of these resulted in bumped heads and nine resulted in bruises, scratches or lacerations.
This recall involves Step2® Whisper Ride Touring Wagons. The two-seat plastic wagon is 25-inches wide by 41.25-inches long by 20-inches high with blue seats, a tan wagon base and a red canopy. The Step2 logo appears on the canopy and on the side of the wagon base.
The wagons were sold at Toys R Us stores nationwide and online at ToysRUs.com from February 2013 to August 2013 for about $130.
Consumers should immediately stop using the wagon and inspect it to determine if the seat belt is attached to the removable blue seat back. If so, the wagon is included in this recall. Consumers with the recalled wagons should contact Step2 toll-free at (866) 860-1887 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.step2.com and click on “Product Recall” for more information on how to obtain a free repair kit.
