CPSC recently updated shopping cart injury data. Between 2006 and 2008 there were an estimated 21, 065 ER treated injuries associated with shopping carts among children under the age of five. Most of these events involved head and face injuries as a result of children falling from carts. In fact, falls accounted for 82% of shopping cart incidents from 2003 to 2008.
