300,000 "Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears" sold online and in Build-A-Bear Workshop stores between April and December of this year have been recalled because of a potential choking hazard. According to Consumer Product Safety Commission, the eyes of the bear could loosen and come off, which could become a choking hazard for young children. No injuries have been reported in relation to this recall. The "Colorful Hearts Teddy Bears" are white with multi-colored hearts on the body. Customers who have purchased the bear can return it to any Build-A-Bear stores in exchange for a coupon for any stuffed animal.

Colorado man awarded $20.6 million in suit against…  

A jury in Massachusetts recently awarded a Colorado man $20.6 million in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against Toys 'R Us over the death of his wife in an accident involving an inflatable slide. According to the lawsuit, the man and his wife were visiting family in Massachusetts when his wife was killed in an accident involving a Toys 'R Us pool slide.  The woman was injured as she was going down the slide and it collapsed, causing her to hit her head on the edge of the pool.  At the age of 29, the wife and mother became a quadriplegic and needed life support.  Her injuries were so severe that she eventually had to be taken off of life support and she passed away. The Toyquest Banzai inflatable pool slide involved in the accident was sold by Toys 'R Us in their store and online.  The product was imported from China and lawyers argued that it did not meet U.S. regulations concerning pool slides.  Last week, the Salem Superior Court found Toys 'R Us liable for the woman's death and awarded her family punitive and compensatory damages.

This week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released a report stating that the Fischer Price Little Builders' Load 'n Go wagon and building blocks set poses a laceration hazard to children.  Mattel and Fischer Price subsequently issued a voluntary recall of around 208,000 of the wagon and building block sets in the U.S. The defective product was sold by retailers from June 2009 to July 2011 and includes a red plastic wagon, a plastic toy dog, and multi-colored plastic building blocks. The toy manufacturer and the CPSC have received 7 reports of injury involving the recalled product.  In most reports, children were injured after falling on the wagon's yellow plastic handle.  5 of these reports involved injuries which necessitated treatment involving stitches or surgical glue.
