State Farm Bears Recalled

This recall from today comes from your good neighbor, State Farm Insurance, in the form of a cute and cuddly, but not so kid-friendly advertisement toy.

Recalled State Farm BearThe State Farm Good Neigh BearsĀ®, another product manufactured in China, were given away for free by agents and during some sponsored events between September 2005 and March 2007. The stuffed animal bear’s eyes can fall off and pose a choking hazard to children, with one report of a child putting the eye in her mouth. Over 800,000 bears are included in the recall for the United States and Canadians have 27,000 to worry about.

Because these toys were given away, and were free, the only thing you can do with them is take them away from the child and dispose of them. Or, for those people who are daring, actually just sew the eye back on!

Is it just me or should the art of sewing be somewhat perfected by this point? Honestly, unless they are making a big deal out of everything these days, you’d think they’d have a way of securing eyes onto stuffed animals by now.

Wouldn’t be ironic if someone filed some form of insurance claim to some incident regarding one of these bears?
