Web posted on January 16, 2013

This joint recall with Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Bugaboo International BV affects the carry handles on Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey Strollers with the following serial numbers:

Bugaboo Cameleon Bugadoo Donkey
S/N 04011090900001 to S/N 04031101009999 S/N 170101105300001 to S/N 170104130900500

S/N 140100093600531 to S/N 140103123350418

The white button on the carry handle may pop out when the Bugaboo Cameleon or Bugaboo Donkey pram body is placed on the ground or on an unstable surface. This may cause the carry handle to detach and result in a potential fall hazard and choking hazard.

Consumers should immediately remove the carry handle from the affected strollers and contact Bugaboo to receive a free replacement carry handle.

The recalled strollers were manufactured in China by Bugaboo International B.V. of Amsterdam, Netherlands from September 2009 to June 2012 and the Bugaboo Donkey strollers were sold from January 2011 to December 2012 at various children retailers across Canada.

Approximately 3,869 units of the Cameleon model were sold in Canada and 38,653 were sold in the United States. Approximately 576 units of the Donkey model were sold in Canada and 7,703 were sold in the United States.

Bugaboo International BV has received 58 incidents of the carry handle white buttons failing in North America with no reported injuries.

For more information, consumers may visit the firm's website or contact Bugaboo at or at 1-800-460-2922 between 7AM and 4PM PT Monday through Friday.

Consumers may view the release by the US CPSC on the Commission's website.
