Choking hazard prompts McDonald’s toy recall

Fast-food giant McDonald’s issued a voluntary safety recall of its Hello Kitty lollipop whistles after receiving reports that small parts of the toy might separate and cause young children to choke, according to a report by Bloomberg on November 11.

Approximately 2.3 million Hello Kitty whistles are affected by the recall. The toys were manufactured in China and were offered free at McDonald’s for every Mighty Kids Meal and Happy Meal. The company already received two reports of children who choked after playing with the product. One of them received medical attention.

Consumers have been requested to return the recalled toy immediately for a free replacement toy and a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices.
