December 22, 2011: Bugaboo Car Seat Adapter Recalled
About 64,000 car seat adapters have been recalled due to fall hazards.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Bugaboo Americas, of El Segundo, California, have recalled about 64,000 car seat adapters. 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.
Bugaboo received one report of the car seat disconnecting from the adapter and stroller frame, causing a minor injury.

This recall involves the 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.
