Parents, be sure to pull these items from your childrenâ€™s toys if you visited McDonaldâ€™s in the last few weeks.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission some 2.3 million Hello Kitty themed whistles are being recalled by McDonaldâ€™s after two children â€œ…coughed out pieces of the whistle that they had sucked into their mouths.â€ One of them required medical attention.
The whistles were handed out in meals from October through the first week of November.
If you bring the hazardous toy back to McDonaldâ€™s, theyâ€™ll give you either a replacement toy and a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices.
Hereâ€™s the full product description from the USCPSC:
The recalled whistles are red and were included in a plastic Hello Kitty figurine holding a pink heart-shaped lollipop. The whistle can be removed and used to make sounds by inhaling or exhaling through the mouthpiece. When closed, the figurine measures about 3 inches in height and width and 1 3/4 inches in depth. The whistle measures about 1 3/4 inches in height and width and 3/4 inches in depth. A picture of Hello Kitty appears on both sides of the whistle. The text â€œÂ©1976, 2014 SANRIO CO., LTD.â€ appears above Hello Kittyâ€™s face on the whistle, and â€œMade for McDonaldâ€™s China CCW Chineâ€ appears below Hello Kittyâ€™s face on the whistle. The bag in which the toy is packaged includes the text â€œHello KittyÂ® Birthday Lollipopâ€ and the number â€œ6â€ in the upper right corner.
