State Farm® Recalls 827,000 Good Neigh Bears® Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with State Farm, today announced a voluntary recall of about 827,000 State Farm Good Neigh Bears because the eyes on these bears can come off, posing a choking hazard to young children.
State Farm received one report of the plastic eye of a bear coming off and a child placing it in her mouth. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the 11-inch (28 cm) and 18-inch (46 cm) State Farm Good Neigh Bears with plastic eyes. The bears are brown and wear a white and red State Farm shirt.
Consumers should immediately take these bears away from young children and discard them.
