  • Walgreens recalls Merry Christmas teddy bear

    I don’t normally post food-related recalls, but since a bunch of us are avid Walgreens shoppers, I wanted to pass this one along: Walgreens has recalled The Dressy Teddy Bear with 4-oz. Chocolate Bar for melamine contamination. There are boy and girl versions, approximately nine inches tall, and they came with a decorative chocolate bar that says “Merry Christmas” and has Santa, a tree, and a bear in a Santa hat. You can view the official notice at the Walgreens site (pdf), which contains a picture of the recalled bears. You may also want to read the official FDA recall notice.
