Bugaboo Americas recalls stroller adapters

WASHINGTON, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Bugaboo Americas car seat adapters that can allow an infant to fall.

About 64,000 car seat adapters were imported from China by Bugaboo Americas of El Segundo, Calif., and sold nationwide from December 2005 to July 2011 for about $45 apiece.


The commission said the adapter can detach from strollers that also have a wheeled board accessory attached for transporting a standing toddler and the car seat is positioned so the child faces forward.

The company is recalling Bugaboo car seat adapter models 80400GC01 and 80401GC02. The adapters are devices designed to attach car seats to stroller frames. They are made of silver aluminum tubing and black plastic connecting parts.

Consumers were advised to stop using the adapter and contact Bugaboo for a free service kit and decals.

Consumers can call 800-460-2922 for information.
