While no injuries have been reported, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning that it is possible for the teddy bear’s eyes to loosen and fall out, posing a choking hazard to children.

Consumers are being instructed to immediately take the recalled teddy bear from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear store to receive a coupon for any available stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear.

The Chinese-made toy is a stuffed animal, approximately 16″ tall with black plastic eyes. The toy sold at Build-A-Bear Workshops and through the firm’s website from April through December for approximately $18.
