The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Bugaboo Design & Sales, today announced the voluntary recall of about 22,500 Bugaboo Bee Strollers because one or both sides of the brakes can fail, causing a stroller to unexpectedly roll away on an incline. This can pose a risk of injury to the child occupant.
Bugaboo has received 121 reports of the stroller’s brakes failing. No injuries have been reported.
Bugaboo Bee strollers have item code 580210 on a label on the back of the seat and item code 50100 on a label on the plastic support under the seat. The strollers were sold in blue, dark khaki, pink, red, yellow, and black. “bugaboo® bee” is printed on the left side of the seat.
Consumers should stop using the strollers immediately and contact Bugaboo to receive a free repair kit. To order the bracket kit, go to www.bugaboo.com and fill in the special order form or contact Bugaboo customer service at (800) 460-2922 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
