Bugaboo Strollers Recalled Over Choking, Fall Risks
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada announced that Bugaboo International B.V. and Bugaboo Americas voluntarily recalled nearly 50,700 Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey Model Strollers due to potential fall risks and choking hazards.
According to the CPSC, nearly 46,300 strollers in the U.S. and 4,440 strollers in Canada are included in the recall. The recalled stroller’s carrycot/seat carry handle is fitted with a button that may loosen and unfasten the handle, resulting in a fall or choking risk for the child.
Although no injuries have been reported, the firm received 58 reports of carry handles detaching.
The recalled product, manufactured in China, was sold at Buy Buy Baby, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Toys R Us and other stores nationwide, and at Bugaboo.com and other online retailers. The Bugaboo Cameleon was sold from September 2009 to June 2012, while the Bugaboo Donkey was sold from January 2011 to December 2012.
The CPSC has advised consumers to remove the faulty handle and contact Bugaboo for a free replacement of the carry handle.
