Step2 Recalls Children’s Riding Toy for Fall Hazard

On November 27, 2012, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that the Step2 Company LLC in Streetsboro, Ohio was issuing a voluntary recall for a children’s riding toy because of a fall hazard.  Parents and guardians need to stop letting children using the recalled products immediately.  

The CPSC reports that about 15,500 units are affected by this recall.  The toys were manufactured in the United States by Step2 and then sold at Target and similar retailers from January 2012 to August 2012.  The riding toys sold for about $25.  

Step2 issued the voluntary recall because children can fall if they lean too far forward on the seat.  They can fall over the handle bar and hit the ground.  The company has received four injury reports so far.  Injuries included bumps to the head, cuts to the lips and gums, and a minor concussion in one case.  

The recalled riding toy is called X-Rider Car.  The majority of the plastic toy is red, and the seat and handle bars are yellow.  There are blue stickers on the front of the toy that look like headlights.  

The toy measures 14 inches high, 14 inches wide, and 19 inches in length.  The Step2 logo is located on the front middle-section of the handlebars, and the company’s contact information is printed on the left side of the toy.  

If you’ve been affected by this recall, you need to take the toy away from the child immediately and call Step2 to receive a replacement.  

You can call Step2 at (866) 860-1887 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday.  You can also visit their website for more information on the recall.
