This recall involves Step2’s Little Helper’s Shopping Carts that were sold at Kohl’s, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Step2, and other retailers nationwide from May 2019 through October 2019.

The following model numbers and color combinations may be affected:

  • 8567KL (pink basket with gray cart)

Step2 has isolated this issue to baskets on only those models that were manufactured in May of 2019, so only units with date code combinations of 5 and 19 are included in the recall. The date code can be found on the center rib on the back of the basket below the handle, and the model number is located on the product’s packaging.
Customers are urged to stop using the shopping cart immediately and contact Step2 for a free replacement or a refund. This can be done by completing an online request or by calling the company at 800-347-8372 between 8 AM and 5 PM EST Monday through Friday.
