Choking And Fall Hazards
The Consumer Products Safety Commission and Bugaboo have voluntarily recalled around 50,000 Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey model strollers due to risks of choking and potential falls.
Product description: The Bugaboo Chameleon and Donkey model strollers were sold in a variety of colors and came with a base, sun canopy and accessories. The serial numbers are located on the stroller’s chassis, which located under the seat.
The following serial numbers are affected:
- Serial Number 04011090900001 to 04031101009999
- Serial Number 08011090900001 to 08021100800386

Where/when it was sold: These recalled strollers were sold at Buy Buy Baby, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Toys R Us and other baby product stores nationwide, online at Bugaboo.com and other online retailers. The Bugaboo Cameleon was sold between September 2009 and June 2012 for about $980. The Bugaboo Donkey was sold from January 2011 through December 2012 for between $1,200 and $1,600.
Reason for recall: The handles of the strollers are the reason for the recall. A button can become disengaged on its own, which causes the handle to detach. This can pose fall or choking hazards to children. There have been no reports of injuries, but 58 reports of the handles becoming detached have been received by Bugaboo.
What you need to do: Customers should remove the handle immediately and contact Bugaboo for a free replacement handle.
