Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Strollers have been recalled because the stroller’s carrying handle can break and detach, posing a fall hazard. The removable carry handle is used to transport the bassinet or seat separately from the chassis. Though the company has received 16 reports of carry handles breaking, no injuries have been reported. The strollers were manufactured in China by Bugaboo International B.V. of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and imported by Bugaboo Americas of El Segundo, Calif.
The stroller has an aluminum and plastic frame with rubberized wheels, a removable seat and bassinet, a removable “U”-shaped carry handle, an under-the-seat storage bag and a sun canopy. Strollers included in the recall have serial numbers from 19010 11153 00001 to 19010 51248 00215. They were sold by Buy Buy Baby, Toys R Us and other baby product stores nationwide, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, online at Bugaboo.com and other online retailers from September 2012 to March 2013 for between $889 and $1,600.
Consumers should immediately remove the carry handle from the stroller’s bassinet or seat and contact Bugaboo for a free replacement handle. While awaiting the replacement handle, consumers can continue to use the seat or bassinet when attached to the chassis but should not attempt to use the seat or bassinet separate from the chassis. Consumers can contact Bugaboo Americas, at 1-800-460-2922, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, at e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.bugaboo.com, and click on “Important Safety Announcements” at the bottom left of the page for more information.
