Bugaboo Bee Strollers Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada in cooperation with Bugaboo Americas, of El Segundo, Calif.have recalled about 7,000 Bugaboo Bee Strollers in the United States and 260 in Canada.
The front swivel wheels can lock while the stroller is in motion, causing the stroller to tip and posing a fall hazard. Four incidents have been reported where the stroller’s swivel wheels locked and the stroller tipped over. In two of these incidents, a baby and a toddler suffered minor injuries.


This recall involves the products listed below:

The recalled strollers are made for newborns and toddlers up to 37 pounds. They are sold in two frame colors: silver and all black. The stroller’s seat comes in black or denim colors and canopy colors include yellow, black, khaki, blue, pink and red, plus special collections colors such as tangerine, soft pink, light green, dark purple, denim and the Missoni print collection. Production dates from January 2011 through September 2011, which are printed with the month abbreviated and year, i.e “Jan. 2011”, the “Bugaboo Bee” name and company address are printed on the date code label located on the stroller frame under the seat unit. “Bugaboo Bee” is also printed on the side of the seat backrest. The Bugaboo Bee Strollers were sold at Toys R Us, Buy Buy Baby and other baby product stores nationwide, online at Bugaboo.com and other online retailers between February 2011 and September 2011 for about $650. They were manufactured in China.
