Stroller manufacturer Bugaboo International is recalling more than 50,000 of its Cameleon and Donkey models in the United States and Canada because of a potentially dangerous feature. From Huffington Post:
The company, whose high-end strollers are popular in both urban areas and suburbs, said Tuesday that a button on the stroller’s carrycot/seat carry handle can become disengaged and cause the handle to detach. That could mean a young passenger could fall or choke.
Bugaboo has received 58 reports of carry handles detaching. No injuries have been reported.
Owners have been advised to immediately remove the carry handle from the strollers and to contact Bugaboo for a free replacement handle. Delivery is expected to take two weeks, but the company has stated that strollers can still be used in the interim.
If you do have a Bugaboo stroller, check the serial number (located on the stroller’s chassis, under the carrycot or seat) to see if your model is included in the recall. The following range of serial numbers are affected:
Serial Number 04011090900001 to 04031101009999
Serial Number 08011090900001 to 08021100800386
Serial Number 140100093600531 to 140103123350418
Serial Number 170101105300001 to 170104130900500
