step2 wagon recall.jpgA popular wagon sold at Toys R Us that's used to haul children is being recalled because the seat backs can come off allowing a rider to fall out, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said today.

More than two dozen children have fallen out of the wagons after the seat backs came off, the CPSC said. Most of the children suffered bumps, bruises, cuts or scrapes.

This recall involves Step2 Whisper Ride Touring Wagons. The tan plastic wagons have two blue seats and a red canopy and have the Step2 logo.

About 14,000 of the wagons were sold by Toys R Us and its website between February and August for about $130.

If you have one of the wagons, you are urged to stop using it immediately. To determine whether you have one of the recalled wagons, check to see if the seat belt is attached to the removable blue seat back. If it is, then the wagon is included in the recall.

The recall involves getting and installing a free repair kit. To get the kit, call Step2 at (866) 860-1887 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or go to the company's recall site.
