Recall date: January 15, 2013

Name of product:
Bugaboo Cameleon and Bugaboo Donkey Model Strollers
The Hazard: There is a button on the stroller's carrycot/seat carry handle that can disengage and cause the handle to detach, posing both fall and choking hazards to young children, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Bugaboo has received 58 reports of the handles becoming detached.

Affected strollers have a serial number that falls within the range listed below. (You can find the serial numbers on the stroller's chassis, located under the carrycot/seat.) Bugaboo Cameleon Serial Number 04011090900001 to 04031101009999; Serial Number 08011090900001 to 08021100800386; Serial Number 140100093600531 to 140103123350418. Bugaboo Donkey Serial Number 170101105300001 to 170104130900500. The strollers were sold at various retailers including Buy Buy Baby, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Toys 'R Us, and online at Bugaboo.com and other retailers. The Bugaboo Cameleon was sold between September 2009 and June 2012; the Bugaboo Donkey was sold from January 2011 through December 2012. About 50,000 strollers in the U.S. and Canada are involved in this recall.

What to do: Remove the carry handle from the strollers and request a free replacement handle from Bugaboo. (You can still use the stroller while waiting for the replacement handle.) Call Bugaboo International at (800) 460-2922, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or go online to www.bugaboo.com and click on "Important Quality Initiative" for more information.

Flame retardants are possible carcinogens.  The reason they're so prevalent in household furniture is because of the cigarette lobbies.  Instead of blaming cigarettes for setting homes on fire, they blamed furniture for being flammable.  I think it's actually a good things these things are flammable.
