August 29, 2013: Build-A-Bear Recalls Stuffed Animal Toy
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Build-A-Bear, announced a voluntary recall of their Sulley Stuffed Animal Toy. About 25,000 stuffed animals in the US and 1,100 in Canada have been recalled.
What’s the Deal?
The stuffed animal’s eye can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Do You Own It?
Sulley is a furry blue creature from the Monsters movies. The Build-A-Bear stuffed monster is covered in blue furry fabric with purple spots, horns on its head and has blue eyes measuring about 1 inch in diameter. The stuffed monster is about 17 inches high and 10.5 inches wide. Tracking labels ending with 4384 or 4385 for USA and 4378 for Canada can be found on a sewn in label on the backside of the leg of the stuffed monster.
The stuffed animals were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at www.buildabear.com during June 2013 for about $23.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately take the recalled Sulley from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear Workshop store to receive a coupon for any stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear Workshop.
