Hayes Specialties Corp. "Siren Whistles"  Recalled

Saginaw, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The Hayes Specialties Corporation is voluntarily recalling approximately 553,000 "Siren Whistles" because they may pose a potential choking hazard.

The whistles being recalled are solid-color cylindrical whistles each made of plastic and measuring 1 3/4-inches long. The product is embossed with "Made in Taiwan." The whistles come in any of the following colors: red, blue, pink, orange, green, and yellow, and were sold individually from a 6-dozen display box. The whistles easily break apart releasing small parts that may pose a potential choking hazard.

These "Siren Whistles" were sold nationwide over the last 2 1/2 years.

While neither CPSC nor Hayes Specialties Corporation is aware of any injuries associated with the whistles distributed by Hayes, CPSC is aware of a number of choking incidents with siren type whistles. CPSC became aware of the potential choking hazard posed by these "Siren Whistles" through a firm that purchased the whistles from Hayes Specialties Corporation.

CPSC Chairman Jacqueline Jones-Smith said, "Consumers having these Siren Whistles should take them away from children and return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund of the purchase price."

Consumers who have any questions about this recall may contact Hayes Specialties Corporation at 517-755-6541.
