Hello Kitty Whistles
By: Haley Egan
The name of this product is called Hello Kitty Birthday Lollipop” Whistles. These 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. The incident/issues and the amount of incidents are that McDonald’s has received two reports of children who coughed out pieces of the whistle that they had sucked into their mouths, including one child who received medical attention. The remedy that says should be done to correct the issue is that consumers should immediately take the whistle away from children and return it to any McDonald’s for a free replacement toy and either a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices. The distributor or company address or who to contact would be McDonald’s Corp., of Oakbrook, Ill. Distributed exclusively at McDonald’s restaurants nationwide from October 2014 through the first week of November 2014 with Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals.
