Team Beans Has Recalled "Bottle Cap Bear" Key Chains

East Brunswick, N.J. (SafetyAlerts) - Team Beans LLC has recalled about 8,000 "Bottle Cap Bear" key chains. A miniature "Coca-Cola" bottle that attaches to the body of the plush bear key chain can come off, posing a choking hazard to young children. Team Beans LLC imported the key chains as part of a licensing agreement with The Coca-Cola Co.

Team Beans LLC has not received any reports of bottles attached to the key chains coming off. This recall is being announced to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The 4-inch "Bottle Cap Bear" key chains feature an auto-racing theme. The bears have white heads and tails, and hold a miniature "Coca- Cola" bottle in their left paws. The bears' outfits contain colors and insignia associated with selected professional racecar drivers. The featured driver's racing number is written on a bottle cap design on the bear's front. The back of each bear has a patch that contains the words, "THE COCA-COLA™ RACING FAMILY," and a black and white checkered "Coca- Cola" bottle in the middle.

Select auto racing souvenir shops and collectibles stores nationwide sold the key chains from January 2002 through July 2002 for about $10

Consumers should take the key chains away from children immediately, and return them to Team Beans for a refund or credit plus postage. Mail the item to Team Beans Forever Collectibles, Attention: Geoff Geruso - cc, 11 Elkins Road, East Brunswick, NJ 08816. For more information, contact Team Beans at (800) 450-5585 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
