Toy manufacturer, Build-A-Bear has issued a recall of nearly 300,000 ‘Colorful Hearts Teddy’ bears after it was discovered that the eyeball buttons on the bear may come lose and pose as a choking hazard.
Officials with Build-A-Bear and the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission announced the recall just days before Christmas arrived.
The bear was sold from April 2011 to Dec. 2011 throughout the U.S. and Canada. Consumers who purchased this bear can go into a Build-A-Bear store and return it for a coupon to purchase a new bear.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued its annual warning of the danger of fireworks. They recommend going to watch a display put on by professionals rather than trying them yourself.
WQAD reports the CPSC estimates that, “in 2009, two people died and nearly nine-thousand had to visit an emergency room after being injured by fireworks. Most of those injuries happened to people under the age of 20 with many accidents resulting in the permanent loss of a limb.”
The Iowa product liability lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., advise you to stay safe this Fourth of July. Do an internet search for your local fireworks display and leave the work to the professionals while you sit back and enjoy.
