Build-A-Bear recalls 300,000 bears


Build-A-Bear is recalling nearly 300,000 bears sold in the United States and Canada due to a possible choking hazard.

The recall includes only Colorful Hearts bears SKU number 017107/117107. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the eyes on the teddy bears can fall off and be swallowed by young children. So far, no injuries have been reported.

Build-A-Bear says the problem comes from substandard fabric, which can rip around the eyes. Customers can take the bear to any Build-A-Bear workshop where they will get a coupon good for another bear. Questions will be answered by calling 1-866-236-5683 or by visiting the company's website.
