Happy Meal Recall: Toy in McDonald's Meals Poses Choking Hazard

By    |   Monday, 10 Nov 2014 07:19 PM

McDonald's has issued a recall for a toy that was given with Happy Meals in October and November, a Hello Kitty-themed whistle that could be a choking hazard for children.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Monday that two children have reportedly coughed out pieces of the whistle that they had sucked into their mouths, including one child who received medical attention, The Associated Press said.

The safety agency said that parts of the 3-inch-tall "Hello Kitty Birthday Lollipop" whistle can detach and be inhaled, posing a risk to small children.

McDonald's said about 2.5 million whistles were manufactured but the majority were not sent to restaurants. The toys that were handed out in the U.S. and Canada in October and November were in Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals.

About 1.6 million whistles have been recovered, the fast-food chain said.

Consumers should return the recalled Happy Meal whistle to any McDonald's for a free replacement toy.
