Most of the time the safety recalls we cover surround mechanical and electrical faults, not teddy bear faults!
A global safety recall has just been initiated by Scania after a teddy bear sold by the truck and bus manufacturer’s merchandise department was found to pose a possible choking hazard.
The recall affects the Teddy bear with blue zipper vest.
The bear carries the identification number – P/N 2199875 and Scania says it has been found that the zipper on the vest could come loose and could pose a risk of choking.
No incidents have been reported.
The product has been sold at Scania dealer shops, at Scania shops during events and exhibitions and at the webshop.
A total of 7,531 teddy bears have been sold across the world.
Customers are asked to immediately stop using the teddy bear and return it to any Scania dealer for a full refund.
You can find your local Scania dealer on the Scania website.
