The Danger:
The warming pouch inside the bear can overheat and ignite when heated in a microwave oven, posing a fire and burn hazard.
The recall includes about 113,000 white plush warming bears with a red hat and brown nose. The bear is about 17 inches long and comes with a buckwheat-filled pouch that is heated in a microwave oven and is inserted into an opening in the bear's belly. "Avon Products" is printed on a white tag sewn onto the bear.
