recalled whistle

About 144,000 plastic "siren" whistles from Chuck E. Cheese have been recalled because small pieces from the whistle can detach and pose a choking hazard. The recall comes after the company received four reports of children starting to choke and three reports of children swallowing pieces of the whistle. The whistles were given as prizes at Chuck E. Cheese in exchange for tickets earned from games. They were available at restaurants nationwide from July 2005 through August 2005.

While some parents may jump for joy at the thought of getting rid of these siren whistles, safer replacement whistles are available for free from any Chuck E. Cheese location.
