Build-A-Bear Workshop Recalls Lapel Pins Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Build-A-Bear Workshop, recently announced a voluntary recall of “Love.Hugs.Peace lapel pins.”

The surface paints on the lapel pin contain excessive levels of lead, which is prohibited under federal law.

The 1.5 inch lapel pin features graphics of a heart, bear head, and peach sign all positioned in front of a globe. The words “Love.Hugs.Peace.” appear at the bottom of the pin.

Stop using the lapel pins and return the lapel pin to any Build-A-Bear workshop store to receive a $5 store coupon. If it is not possible to return the pin to a store, you can contact the company for alternate instructions on receiving a refund.

For additional information, call Build-A-Bear Workshop at 866-236-5683 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Saturday, or visit the company’s website,
