TANGLED TREEPLES KFC The container can suction onto a child’s mouth or be lodged in the throat

SCOOTER BUG McDonald’s The antenna on this bug, recalled in March, easily snaps off and can be swallowed

POKEMON BALL Burger King 25 million of these were recalled in 1999. The ball can fit over a child’s mouth
