Bugaboo Americas, the makers of Bugaboo baby and child strollers, have recently recalled their Bugaboo Bee stroller because of the risk that children might fall out of it, according to a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada.
The stroller’s front wheels can lock while the stroller is in motion, making it much easier to tip the stroller over. So far, the company has received four reports of babies and toddlers who were in a Bugaboo Bee stroller when its front wheels locked and it tipped. The young children suffered minor injuries from the falls.
The recalled strollers were sold in the U.S. and Canada between January and September 2011. They were available at toy stores, such as Toys R Us and Buy Buy Baby, as well as online from bugaboo.com.
Parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the Bugaboo Bee strollers and contact either Bugaboo or the store where the stroller was purchased to receive free replacement wheels for the stroller. More information on the recall is available by calling Bugaboo at (800) 460-2922, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting the company’s recall page online at http://www.bugaboo.com/non-swiveling-wheels.
