PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Thousands of products have been recalled this week because they pose serious risks, including lacerations, choking, and even mold, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Build-A-Bear is recalling more than 34,000 Starbrights Dragon stuffed animals. According to the company, the satin seams of the toy can open, allowing the stuffing material to be exposed – posing a choking hazard.

Starbrights Dragon is covered in blue, furry fabric. Consumers should take the toys away from their children and return them to any Build-A-Bear Workshop for a coupon for any stuffed animal. The recalled animals were sold between April 2015 and August 2015.
