Recall: Bugaboo Bee Strollers Due to Risk of Brake Failure

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Bugaboo Design and Sales, today announced a voluntary recall of 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(r) bee” is printed on the left side of the seat.

These strollers were sold at juvenile product retailers nationwide and on various Web sites from August 2007 through April 2009 for about $530.

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.

For additional information, contact Bugaboo at (800) 460-2922 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, visit the firm’s Web site at www.bugaboo.com, or email the firm at bugaboobee-service@bugaboo.com
