The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Bugaboo International announced a voluntary recall today of two models from their high-end stroller line.
This recall involves approximately 46,300 strollers in the U.S. and about 4,400 strollers in Canada. The Bugaboo “Cameleon” and Bugaboo “Donkey” strollers have received 58 reports of carry handles detaching. No injuries have been reported as of yet.
There is a button on the stroller’s carry cot/seat carry handle, which can become disengaged and cause the handle to detach. This can pose fall and choking hazards to the children.
The recall involves the carry handles on Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey model strollers. The strollers were sold with a base, sun canopy and other accessories in a choice of colors. A fabric tag on the side of the sun canopy has Bugaboo and the model name. Strollers included in the recall have a serial number that falls within the range listed below. Serial numbers are printed on the stroller’s chassis, which is located under the carry cot/seat.
Serial Number 04011090900001 to 04031101009999
Serial Number 08011090900001 to 08021100800386
Serial Number 140100093600531 to 140103123350418
Serial Number 170101105300001 to 170104130900500
These strollers were sold at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Toys R Us, Buy Buy Baby, and other baby product stores nationwide, online at Bugaboo.com as well as other online retailers. The Bugaboo Cameleon was sold between September 2009 and June 2012 for about $980. The Bugaboo Donkey was sold from January 2011 through December 2012 for between $1,200 and $1,600.
Consumers should immediately remove the carry handle from the strollers and contact Bugaboo for a free replacement handle. Consumers can continue to use the strollers while they await the replacement handle.
