An unrestrained infant could tumble from the seat, posing an injury hazard

Bugaboo North America of New York, N.Y., is recalling about 1,200 Bugaboo Dragonfly Seat Strollers sold in the U.S. and Canada.

In “parent-facing” mode, the backrest of the seat can move downward, placing the infant in a negative recline.

In this situation, an unrestrained infant could tumble from the seat, posing an injury hazard.

The firm has received one report in the U.S. and seven reports in South Korea of the backrest of the seat moving downward during use when in parent-facing mode. No injuries have been reported in the U.S.

This recall involves only the seat sold with the Bugaboo Dragonfly Seat Strollers.

The strollers are comprised of a base on which either a seat or bassinet can be mounted. The seat measures approximately 11.8 inches wide and 22.8 inches long and comes in either black, gray or forest green.

Only units with serial numbers beginning with the following numbers are included in the recall:

  • S46012302xxxxxx
  • S460123013xxxxx
  • S46012303xxxxxx
  • S460123015xxxxx
  • S46012307xxxxxx
  • S46012320xxxxxx
  • S460123010xxxxx

The strollers, manufactured in China, were sold at children’s specialty stores nationwide and online at www.bugaboo.com in May and June 2023 for about $900 for seat strollers only, and about $1,100 for bassinet strollers with seats.
