McDonalds Recalls 2.3 Million Whistles Due to Product Liability Claims and Concerns
When you purchase an item from a company, you expect it to be safe. Unfortunately, products are often released that can cause serious harm to consumers. These problems can result in the company facing product liability claims and in some cases, costly recalls.
Take the case of roughly 2.3 million whistles that fast food giant, McDonalds, had to recall due to safety concerns. According to an article from KSDK 5 News, the whistles that were distributed in Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals presented a choking hazard to consumers.
Experts found that a small ball inside the 3-inch “Hello Kitty Birthday Lollipop” whistle could break free from the toy. In two instances, children inhaled the small ball and choked.
Anyone in possession of the affected toys is encouraged to return the item to a McDonald’s location for a free replacement.
