Step 2 recalls riding toys after injuries
Step 2, in conjunction with CPSC, recalled 2.5 million Push Around and Whisper Ride Buggies today. The bolt holding the handle to the buggy can come out, causing the handle to detach. CPSC reports two injuries requiring medical care and 26 other minor injuries. It appears the handle fails while on an incline and the baby and buggy roll away, causing the injuries.
Only buggies with yellow knobs are affected by this recall. Consumers should stop using the product and contact Step 2 for a free repair kit.
