OAK BROOK, Ill. — McDonald's Corp. on Monday voluntarily recalled about 234,000 toys that come with the restaurant chain's Happy Meals after learning three children had choked or gagged on the "Scooter Bug" antenna, which is prone to breaking off.

The toys were distributed with McDonald's Happy Meals from November of last year through February in Canada and the United States, the Oak Brook-based company said.

The toy is about 3 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide, and its legs move back and forth when rolled. It has a yellow face with red antennas, orange feet and a purple body with green spots. The words "Fisher Price" are on the top of the toy with "MFG.FOR MCD CORP.CHINA" are on the rear of the toy.

Parents are advised to take the toy away from children immediately and exchange it at any McDonald's restaurant for a replacement toy. For more information, call the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission at 800-638-2772 or visit McDonald's Web site at www.mcdonalds.com.
