Recall on Bugaboo Bee Baby Stroller

A recall has been made on about 22,500 Bugaboo Bee strollers after at least 121 reports were received about the brakes on the baby stroller failing. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Bugaboo North America, Inc. announced the baby stroller recall on June 2, 2009, indicating that although no injuries have been reported in association with the defect, consumers should stop using them immediately.

One or both sides of the Bugaboo Bee baby stroller brakes can fail, posing a potential risk of injury to a child if the stroller is on an incline. Given the relatively small number of strollers involved in the recall, the large number of reported brake failures is concerning for consumers, as reported problems usually only account for a small fraction of the actual failures caused by a defective product. The Bugaboo Bee Strollers were sold on various web sites and at retail stores throughout the United States from August 2007 through April 2009. The high-end strollers retailed for about $530.
