A recall was recently announced concerning a Bugaboo stroller made by Cameleon3. The Consumer Product Safety Council announced the recall due to 16 reports of the handles breaking. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported in relation to this recalled product. They include specific serial numbers. Customers are urged to remove the carry handle immediately and get in touch with Bugaboo for a replacement handle. Customers can continue to use the seat while it is attached to the chassis. The product was sold at Toys R US, Buy Buy Baby, and other retail baby product stores, according to news reports.
Nine strollers failed safety tests conducted by authorities in New Zealand. 10 popular strollers were put through six different tests by an independent company, and only one passed, the BebeCare Rverse XLR. Seven did not pass a strangulation test, which checks to see if the harness could potentially strangle a child if they slipped and got their head caught in it, which was a safety standard introduced in 2009. The Chicco Echo, Childcare Discovery, and Bugaboo Donkey Mono were among the strollers that failed, according to news reports.
Kolcraft Enterprises is recalling Contours Options LT Tandem Strollers because the front wheel assembly can break, and the nuts holding the basket to the stroller can detach.

Around 223,000 Venezia and Pliko-P3 strollers are being recalled because they may harm children using them by strangulation or entrapment. Another type of stroller was also recalled because it presents several hazards, including choking and falling. One case in 2006 was reported concerning a child whose head became stuck between the seat and track, while another young child was killed when their head became trapped between the stroller seat and tray. Peg Perego and the Consumer Product Safety Commission became aware of these reports not until years after they happened. The hazards of a child becoming trapped or strangled by the product become more pronounced if the child under the age of 12 months is not properly harnessed in the seat, when they can fall between the tray and bottom of the seat, where their neck can become trapped. The strollers were made before standards were created in 2008 which outlined the necessary room needed to fit the child between the tray and seat if they were to fall through.
The Peg Perego and Kolcraft stroller models were manufactured from 2004-2007 and were available in several different colors. The product was available across the control at various retail stores including Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us. There are some models not included in the recall, including ones with a bumper bar and the seat with a tray that includes two cup holders. The model numbers included in the Venezia recall are ” IPVA13MU09, IPVA13MU10, IPVA13US09, IPVA13US10, IPVA13US32, IPVA13US34, IPVC13NA32, and IPVC13NA34,” and teh Pliko-P3 model numbers are “IPFR28US34xxxxxxxx, IPFT28NA63, IPFT28NA64, IPP328MU10, IPP328MU09, IPP328US09, IPP328US10, IPP329US10, IPPA28US32, IPPA28US33, IPPA28US34, IPPD28NA34, IPPF28NA32, IPPF28NA57, IPPF28NA65, IPPF28NA66, IPPF28NA67, IPPF28NA68, IPPO28US32, IPPO28US34, IPPO28US62, IPPO28US69, IPPO28US70, and IPPO28US71,” according to news reports.
