McDonald’s (MCD) recalled 2.3 million Hello Kitty-themed toys after two children reportedly choked on a detachable whistle, regulators said Monday.

The fast food giant announced the recall of the Hello Kitty figurine with a detachable red whistle after it received two separate reports of a child inhaling a whistle part, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. One of those children required medical attention after the incident.

Roughly 2.3 million figurines were sold in the U.S. and an additional 200,000 in Canada in October and November.
