Toy recalled for potential choking hazard
Nearly 300,000 teddy bears made by Build-A-Bear Workshop have been recalled for a potential choking hazard, the company announced last week.
The “Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears” were sold online and in stores throughout the United States and Canada from April to December. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the beaded eyes on the bear could loosen and fall out, creating a choking hazard for young children. No injuries related to the recall have been reported.
The bear is white with multicolored hearts and stands about 16 inches tall.
Consumers who have purchased the “Colorful Hearts Teddy Bear” can return it to any Build-A-Bear store and exchange it for a free coupon on any stuffed animal.
