2.3M McDonald’s Happy Meal toys in U.S. and Canada recalled
McDonald’s is recalling an estimated 2.3 million whistle toys in the U.S. and Canada present in Happy Meals for a possible choking risk they may pose to children, CNN reported on November 11.
The recall affects the Hello Kitty plastic toy with a detachable red whistle that has been in Happy Meals since October. At least two children choked on the whistle, according to reports from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and one needed medical attention. McDonald’s stated that they have already managed to get back 70 percent of the recalled toys and told consumers to keep the whistles away from children. The fast food company will replace the defective toys.
Children unfortunately have the potential to suffer serious health conditions from using defective toys that are made available on the market. If you believe this happened to your loved one, you may be entitled to fight for compensation from those responsible.
