The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall (Recall Number: 13-274) on the part of the Build-A-Bear company. The product being recalled is the Sulley character stuffed monster that was sold in June of 2013. According to the company website, consumers should stop using Sulley immediately. The character’s eye was not sewn securely and, as a result, can detach. This poses a potential choking hazard to young children.
There were 25,000 of the stuffed monsters sold in the U.S. and 1,100 sold in Canada. The Sulleys being recalled have a tracking label ending with 4384 or 4385 for the USA and 4378 for Canada. The tracking number can be found on a sewn in label on the backside of Sulley’s leg.
The company advises consumers to return Sulley to their local Build-A-Bear Workshop store, and they will be given a coupon for any available animal of their choice from Build-A-Bear. The stuffed monsters were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at www.buildabear.com during June 2013 for about $23. They were imported by Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc., of St. Louis, Mo., and they were manufactured in China.
