A recall has been issued for more than 25,000 Sulley character stuffed animal sold at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online. The stuffed animal’s eye can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Sulley is a furry blue creature from the Monsters movies. The Build-A-Bear stuffed monster is covered in blue furry fabric with purple spots, horn on its head and has blue eyes measuring about 1 inch in diameter. The stuffed monster is about 17 inches high and 10.5 inches wide.
Sadly, choking hazards in children’s toys and other juvenile products account for numerous deaths and injuries each year. A toy that is dangerous because it is hazardously designed may be even more so when badly made, misleadingly advertised, inaccurately labeled, or foolishly and irresponsibly sold to or for children who are too young to appreciate the toy’s hazards or defend against them.
