The Mitchell Import Company "Siren Whistle" Toys
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
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.

Company, Inc. at 1-800-648-2426.
