Bugaboo Strollers With Handle Problem Recalled

March 29, 2013

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.
