RECALL ALERT: Build-A-Bear Teddy Bears for Choking Hazard
Build-A-Bear Workshop is recalling about 300,000 Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears sold in the United States and Canada because of a choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said last week.
The CPSC said the bear's eyes could loosen and fall out, posing a choking hazard to children. No injuries have been reported.
The Colorful Hearts Teddy Bear is about 16 inches high with black plastic eyes. The body is covered in multi-colored heart shapes.
The bears were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshops and the company's website from April through December.
Consumers can return the Colorful Hearts Teddy Bear to any Build-A-Bear store for a coupon for any available stuffed animal.
