Plastic Whistles Are Choking Hazard

Comments Off

Your pizza may have come with something more dangerous than pepperoni. CEC Entertainment, franchisor of the Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant chain, is recalling 144,000 plastic whistles. The recall was prompted by an investigation by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission after reports of children starting to choke on the whistle’s internal pieces. The made-in-China toy whistles were distributed as prizes at Chuck E. Cheese restaurants by redeeming tickets earned by playing games between July 2005 and August 2005.
