The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, announced a voluntary recall of the Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey Model Strollers due to a fall and choking hazard. Approximately 46,300 in the U.S. and 4,440 in Canada were included in this recall.
Choking on a stroller? Sounds strange I know, but a button on the stroller’s carrycot/seat carry handle can become disengaged and cause the handle to detach, posing fall and choking hazards to young children. So far Bugaboo has received 58 reports of carry handles detaching. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the carry handles on Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey model strollers with detachable carrycots/seats. The strollers were sold with a base, sun canopy and other accessories in various 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, located under the carrycot/seat.
