Step2 Whisper Ride Touring Wagons are being recalled due to a fall risk for children.

About 14,000 of the wagons were recalled because a removable seat back can detach and allow a child to fall out of the wagon, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The company received 29 reports of the seat back detaching, 28 of the detachments resulting in the child falling out of the wagon. Fourteen of the falls resulted in bumped heads; nine resulted in bruises, scratches or lacerations, according to the CPSC.

The wagons were sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores and on ToysRUs.com from February to August.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the wagon and to examine the toy to see if the seat belt attaches to the removable seat back. If it does, that wagon is included in the recall, and consumers should contact Step2 for a free repair kit.

Consumers can call Step2 toll-free at (866) 860-1887 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.step2.com and click on "Product Recall."
