The Mitchell Import Company "Siren Whistle" Toys Recalled

Shawnee Mission, KS (SafetyAlerts) - The Mitchell Import Company is voluntarily recalling approximately 174,000 "Siren Whistle" toys because they may pose a fatal choking hazard to young children.

The products being recalled consist of sets of six solid- color whistles (red, blue, pink, orange, green, and yellow) made of plastic measuring 1-3/4 inches long. The whistles break apart easily causing small parts to separate from the whistles which could be ingested by a child.

The "Siren Whistles" were sold nationwide from 1988 to 1989 for about $.75 per package. While neither CPSC nor The Mitchell Company is aware of any injuries associated with the toy, this corrective action is being taken to prevent this possibility.

Consumers having these "Whistle Toys" should take them away from children and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund of the purchase price.

Consumers who have any questions about this recall may contact The Mitchell Import Company, Inc. at 1-800-648-2426.
