Bugaboo Car Seat Adapter Recalled

Date:
December 22, 2011
Category:
Strollers

The Danger:
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.

Sold At:
Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, Neiman Marcus, other department stores, and independent juvenile stores, Bugaboo.com, and other online retailers nationwide from December 2005 to July 2011 for about $45.
