Build-A-Bear Workshop is recalling about 300,000 Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears sold in the United States and Canada because of a choking hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said last week.

The CPSC said the bear's eyes could loosen and fall out, posing a choking hazard to children. No injuries have been reported.

The Colorful Hearts Teddy Bear is about 16 inches high with black plastic eyes. The body is covered in multi-colored heart shapes.

The bears were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshops and the company's website from April through December.

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

For more information, consumers can call the company toll-free at 866-236-5683 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Saturday, and between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Sunday.
