According to various news sources a recall from the manufacturer of baby strollers Bugaboo was issued regarding their Bugaboo Bee item. The company has explained in their website that there have been alleged complaints regarding the front wheels. Whenever they swivel they tend to stick, which may eventually lead to a tipping issue. This happened after the company switched from the metal made wheels to the plastic ones.
The website also claims that since the safety of this product represents a liability to baby-stroller users, they are stopping the manufacturing and shipping of the questionable stroller.
The company has stated that a replacement set is being shipped to all consumers registered with them. All of those who have purchased any of their recalled products originated between January 2011 and September 2011 should be registered in their website, if not, they must do so immediately.
As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer I understand that it’s important to keep the general public aware of the news regarding potential dangers of products we use on a daily basis. Product liability attorneys should be contacted right away if you or a loved one is the victim of damage or health issues related to consumer products.
