(KMOV.com) -- St. Louis based Build-A-Bear Workshop is recalling thousands of lapel pins due to excessive levels of lead.

The Consumer Product Safety Commision says the pins were distributed at stores nationwide and online from July 2009 through October 2010.  The pins were manufactured in China.

The 1.5 inch lapel pins feature graphics of a heart, bear head, and peace sign all positioned in front of a globe and the words "Love.Hugs.Peace." appear at the bottom.

The CPSC reports that the surface paints on the lapel pin contain excessive levels of lead which is prohibited under federal law.

No injuries have been reported.

The recall covers 26,500 pins in the United States and 2,200 in Canada.
