Build-A-Bear Workshop has issued a recall on more than 300,000 of its Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears sold in the U.S. and Canada after the Consumer Product Safety Commission deemed the product a choking hazard.
According to the CPSC, the eyes of the Colorful Hearts bears could potentially loosen and fall out, a choking hazard to children.
No injuries have been reported in relation to the bears from St. Louis-based Build-A-Bear before the recall was issued, the agency said.
The 16-inch Colorful Heart Teddy Bears with black plastic eyeballs and fur adorned with bright colors and hearts went on sale in April before being pulled from Build-A-Bear shelves in December. The agency said 284,000 were sold in the U.S. for $18 and 13,200 in Canada for $23; they were manufactured in China.
Build-A-Bear asks that consumers return the bears immediately to the nearest Build-A-Bear Workshop in order to receive a store coupon good for any available stuffed animal.
