Build-A-Bear Recalls Teddy Bear Over Choking Hazard

(CBS13) – It’s cute and cuddly — and a choking hazard.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Company is recalling nearly 300,000 Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the bears’ eyes can loosen and fall out, posing a choking hazard to small children.

So far, no injuries have been reported.

The bears were sold in the U.S. and Canada from April 2011 to December 2011.

Consumers can return the Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears and return them to any Build-A-Bear store to receive a coupon for any available stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear.

For more information, you can go to or call them at 866-236-5683.

    Those teddy bears were made in China.
