One would think if you put together the kid-centric happy meals of McDonald's and the cutesy Japanese cartoon Hello Kitty, you'd have a match made in heaven, right? Not so much.
McD's issued a voluntary recall Nov. 10 for one of its Hello Kitty 40th anniversary Happy Meal toys due to it being a choking hazard.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, since Oct. 31 there were about 2.3 million of these Hello Kitty-themed whistles distributed in the U.S. with another 200,000 in Canada.
