The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc, recently announced a voluntary recall of about 297,000 Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears because the teddy bear’s eyes could loosen and fall out, posing a choking hazard to children.
The Colorful Hearts Teddy is a stuffed animal about 16 inches high with black plastic eyes. The bear’s fabric covering is printed with multi-colored heart shapes.
The recalled bears were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshops nationwide and online at www.buildabear.com from April 2011 through December 2011 for about $18 in the U.S. and $23 in Canada.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled teddy bear from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear store to receive a coupon for any available stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear.
