Frequently Asked Questions about Babboe cargo bikes (update 04-04-2024)

On 15 February 2024, the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) instructed Babboe to stop selling cargo bikes because their safety cannot be sufficiently guaranteed. The cargo bikes can be sold again when it has been sufficiently demonstrated that they are safe, among other things by means of full technical documentation to be submitted to the NVWA. The NVWA also demanded a recall of cargo bikes that present a serious safety risk.

Babboe announced on 27 February that it would recall and replace a number of types of cargo bikes. On 2 April, Babboe launched a recall of several more bikes. The company also said it would carry out repairs on some other types of cargo bikes. For information on which ruling applies to your cargo bike, visit the Babboe website (available from 10 April).

Babboe has yet to submit technical documentation to the NVWA showing that the bikes are safe again after replacement or repair. Until then the advice not to use Babboe cargo bikes until further notice remains in place. In this way, the NVWA is ensuring the safety of consumers.
