Pokémon Toys Recalled

    A while back, Burger King, in hopes that they could ride the success of Pokémon and the then-upcoming release of Pokémon: The First Movie, they decided to market, with each child's meal, one Pokémon toy in a Pokéball.

    The toys were wildly popular, until today. Burger King announced a recall on the toys, proclaiming that they represented a suffocation hazard to little children. The threat was realized when a 13-month old child sucked on half of the ball. The suction created a vacuum, and the unfortunate child died.

    Parents are advised to either destroy the balls or return them to Burger King for a small order of fries.
