The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for a Build-A-Bear's product because of a possible choking hazard.

A recall has been announced for the Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears product.

According to the CPSC, the teddy bear's eyes could loosen and fall out, which could pose a choking hazard for children. 

So far, however, no choking incidents have been reported.

Over 280,000 of these particular bears have been sold across the United States.  The toys are manufactured in China.

The CPSC says consumers should immediately take the bears away from children and return them to Build-A-Bear stores.  The company will give consumers a coupon which can be redeemed for any available stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear.
