Absolutely! You can sue almost anyone, including McDonald's. However, do you think it will be worth it? In a case like this, you have to prove that their negligence caused you or your family injury. What injuries were actually sustained? If your answer is that you or your baby were almost seriously injured, then I would say that you almost had a good case.

It doesn't sound like there are any damages. If there is no injury, it is pointless to sue. You can sue for what might have gone wrong.
You could sue but the damages would not be very much.

Hopefully you have the plastic. Unfortunately what you get for your claim is small--you don't get to claim for what could have happened, just what did.
I am glad that neither you nor your baby got injured. That is very fortunate. However, when you have no injury, you also have no case. I would communicate with McDonalds about your experience. See what it has to say. But most likely, you will end up with some coupons.

You can always sue. The question is "will you win?" In this case the answer is probably "no." You do not describe any injury or damages. Your best route would be to talk to the manager at the McDonalds. Maybe you can get some free breakfast sandwiches.
