These "Message Bears" are being pulled from Target store shelves.

Target says it's pulling the bears after California's Attorney General raised concerns about illegal levels of lead in the bears.

The company only took one day to issue the recall after Attorney General Jerry Brown said testing of the Message bears revealed lead levels that violate federal law.
