In January of this year Bugaboo International recalled more than 50,000 of its Cameleon and Donkey strollers in the United States and Canada because their handles can detach and potentially cause an injury to a child. Now Bugaboo faces the same issue with its Cameleon3 Strollers – the stroller’s carrying handle can break and detach, posing a fall hazard.
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. The bassinet, seat and sun canopy come in a variety of colors. The removable carry handle is used to transport the bassinet or seat separately from the chassis. The words “Bugaboo” and “Cameleon3” appear on a fabric tag on the side of the sun canopy. Strollers included in the recall have serial numbers from 19010 11153 00001 to 19010 51248 00215. Serial numbers are printed on a horizontal bar of the stroller’s chassis beneath the seat. Bugaboo has received 16 reports of carry handles breaking.
