St. Louis, MO — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Build-A-Bear Workshop® have voluntarily recalled Swimwear Set with Inflatable Inner Tube for strangulation hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on November 16, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the inner tube accessory can be pulled over a small child’s head, which poses a strangulation hazard to consumers.

“The inner tube is part of the three-piece Fruit Tutu Bikini swimwear set for teddy bears, which includes a two-piece fruit-print bikini. The inner tube is 9 inches in diameter and pink with white and yellow flowers printed on it. The model number of the swimwear set is 017220 and is located on the price sticker on the ‘Build-A-Bear’ cardboard tag,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to return the product to any Build-A-Bear Workshop® store for a $5 store coupon. If you are unable to return the product to the store, consumers can contact Build-A-Bear to learn how to obtain a refund.
