Retailers Recall 22,500 Bugaboo Strollers

Several retailers have recalled about 22,500 Bugaboo Bee Strollers. 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. They 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 bugaboo.com and fill in the special order form or contact Bugaboo customer service.
