Target recalls Bugaboo Cameleon and Donkey strollers due to fall and choking hazard

Target recalls Bugaboo Cameleon and Donkey strollers due to fall and choking hazard

Target has recalled 46,300 Bugaboo Cameleon and Donkey strollers in the U.S. and 4,440 in Canada because a button on the stroller’s carrycot/seat carry handle can become disengaged and cause the handle to detach, posing fall and choking hazards to young children.

Bugaboo received 58 reports of carry handles detaching. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the carry handles on Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey model strollers with detachable carrycots/seats. The strollers were sold with a base, sun canopy and other accessories in various colors. A fabric tag on the side of the sun canopy has Bugaboo and the model name.

Strollers included in the recall have a serial number that falls within the range listed below. Serial numbers are printed on the stroller’s chassis, located under the carrycot/seat.

Bugaboo Cameleon serial numbers:

  • 04011090900001 to 04031101009999
  • 08011090900001 to 08021100800386
  • 140100093600531 to 140103123350418

Bugaboo Donkey serial numbers:

  • 170101105300001 to 170104130900500

The recalled strollers were sold at Buy Buy Baby, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Toys R Us and other baby product stores nationwide, online at Bugaboo.com and other online retailers. The Bugaboo Cameleon was sold between September 2009 and June 2012 for about $980. The Bugaboo Donkey was sold from January 2011 through December 2012 for $1,200 to $1,600.

If you have one of these recalled strollers, remove the carry handle from the strollers and contact Bugaboo for a free replacement handle. You can continue to use the stroller while waiting for the replacement handle.
