Build-A-Bear Recalls Colorful Hearts Teddy Bear

Last updated on Thursday, December 29, 2011

(UNDATED) - Build-A-Bear Workshop announced a voluntary recall of its Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears due to a potential choking hazard to children.

In a news release, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the teddy bear's eyes could loosen and fall out.

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.

More than 284,000 of the bears were sold in the United States and 13,200 in Canada.
The company said no injuries have been reported, but that consumers should immediately take the recalled teddy bear away from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear store to receive a coupon for any available stuffed animal.

Consumers wanting additional information can contact the company at 866-236-5683, or visit the Build-A-Bear website.
