Yes: he should be evaluated to make sure there are no signs of aspiration and residual foreign body in his respiratory tree.
Dr. Foster Carr

Yes: Turning purple suggests that he was without sufficient oxygen his blood while his airway was blocked. He should still see a doctor to make sure he did not aspirate or have smaller pieces of the meatball lodge into his lungs.
