Build-A-Bear Workshop is voluntarily recalling its 1.5-inch “Love Hugs Peace” lapel pins. The pins were sold from July 2009 to October 2010 for $3.50 ($4 Canadian). Surface paints on the pin have been found to contain excessive levels of lead.
Consumers should stop using the pins immediately and return them to any Build-A-Bear Workshop for a $5 store coupon; or call Build-A-Bear Workshop toll-free at 1 (866) 236-5683 for alternate instructions on returning the pins and receiving a refund. (www.buildabear.com)
