This past week, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Bugaboo North America Inc., of Hermosa Beach, Calif recalled 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.
The brewers were sold at Juvenile product retailers nationwide and on various Web sites from August 2007 through April 2009 for about $530. The 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. The strollers were made in Taiwan.
