Bugaboo is issuing a recall for both the Bee and their car seat adapters. Here are the details from the CPSC with additional details from Bugaboo:

Bugaboo Bee Strollers

Hazard: The front swivel wheels can lock while the stroller is in motion, causing the stroller to tip and posing a fall hazard.

Description: The recalled strollers are made for newborns and toddlers up to 37 pounds. They are sold in two frame colors: silver and all black. The stroller’s seat comes in black or denim colors and canopy colors include yellow, black, khaki, blue, pink and red, plus special collections colors such as tangerine, soft pink, light green, dark purple, denim and the Missoni print collection. Production dates from January 2011 through September 2011, which are printed with the month abbreviated and year, i.e “Jan. 2011”, the “Bugaboo Bee” name and company address are printed on the date code label located on the stroller frame under the seat unit. “Bugaboo Bee” is also printed on the side of the seat backrest.

The recalled models were sold between February 2011 and September 2011. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Bugaboo or the retailer where the stroller was purchased to receive free replacement swivel wheels.

Bugaboo Car Seat Adapter for the Bugaboo Cameleon (when used with the wheeled board only)

Hazard: When the adapter is used on a stroller that also has a wheeled board accessory attached for transporting a standing toddler, and the car seat is positioned so the child faces forward, the car seat can disconnect from the adapter and fall. This only applies when used with the Cameleon.

Description: This recall involves the Bugaboo car seat adapter models 80400GC01 and 80401GC02 for the Bugaboo Cameleon only. The adapters are devices designed to attach car seats to stroller frames. They are made of silver aluminum tubing and black plastic connecting parts.

The recalled models were sold between December 2005 to July 2011. Consumers should immediately stop using the adapter and contact Bugaboo for a free service kit and decals. For additional information, contact Bugaboo at serviceus@bugaboo.com or (800) 460-2922 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.bugaboo.com.
