The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation Bugaboo International, today announced a voluntary recall of about 50,740 Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey Strollers because 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.
