McDonald’s, one of the largest burger chains in the world is recalling Hello Kitty-themed whistle given to children in Happy Meals, reports Fox 8.
The burger chain is recalling the toy citing a chance that the children could choke on some of its parts.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission had said on Monday, 10th November, 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 safety agency said that parts of the three-inch tall “Hello Kitty Birthday Lollipop” whistle can detach and be inhaled, posing a risk to small children.
