McDonald’s is recalling 2.5 million Hello Kitty themed whistles that were given to children in Happy Meals, citing a chance that they could choke on the parts.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports says 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,

About 2.3 million whistles were distributed in the United States and 200,000 in Canada from October through the first week of November.

They were manufactured in China.

Consumers should return the whistle to any McDonald’s for a free replacement toy, or a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices.
