Following the incidence, Walmart authorities have assured their customers that they have asked their employees to check on the handlebars as many times as possible to ensure safety.
In a statement, Walmart spokesperson also said, “It’s disturbing that someone would purposely try to injure a customer or associate. We take this matter seriously and have since checked all shopping carts and are currently conducting regular checks.”
According to Jumble Joy, the blades might have been placed in the carts by shoplifters who cut open the packages in the store as it makes it easy for them to steal smaller products.
