A stuffed animal that poses a choking hazard is prompting a recall from Build-A-Bear.

The retailer announced this week that it would recall the Starbright Dragon stuffed animal. In the affected toys, the satin seam can open, allowing the stuffing material to be exposed, posing a choking hazard for young children. Build-A-Bear is recalling about 34,000 stuffed animals.

Starbrights Dragon is covered in a blue furry fabric with silver satin tummy, feet pads, wings and horns. The horns light up and the toy makes a musical sound when the hand is squeezed. The stuffed animal is about 17 inches high. The tracking label ending with 9333 or 9334 can be found on the label sewn on the backside of the leg.

The Starbright Dragons were available at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online between April 2015 and August 2015 for about $25.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled stuffed animal away from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear Workshop store to receive a coupon for any stuffed animal.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact Build-A-Bear at (866) 236-5638.
