Raleigh UK as Distributor of Babboe Cargo Bikes has released the statement below:

Temporary stop sales Babboe cargo bikes 

The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) has indicated to Babboe that the company has been unable to provide sufficient information showing that certain models do not pose a safety risk.  Sales of these models must therefore be stopped. 

As a precautionary measure, Babboe has decided to temporarily halt sales of all Babboe cargo bikes. So this unfortunately applies to all channels, including our suppliers. Accessories and parts can still be ordered.

Babboe and NVWA will continue to consult with each other to ensure that the requested information is provided as soon as possible, so that sales can be resumed. Until then, we will follow the NVWA’s advice to not use the Babboe cargo bikes.

Babboe are currently in discussions with NVWA to prepare a recall for certain Babboe models. 

We aim to have a solution as soon as possible but we expect that this will take another 4 weeks.

If you have any questions you can reach us at support@raleigh.co.uk

Clarifying this statement by phone, Raleigh have asked us to inform Babboe users that they should NOT USE their bikes while this is in progress.
