McDonald’s recalls Happy Meal fitness tracker after burns reported
McDonald’s Step-iT activity wristbands are being recalled due to risks of skin irritation or burns, according to a statement released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Tuesday’s recall was issued after McDonald’s received more than 70 reports of incidents, including seven reports of blisters, after wearing the wristbands. A total of 29 million wristbands distributed between August 9th and August 17th are being recalled.
The activity wristbands, found in Happy Kids and Mighty Kids Meals, come in two styles: Activity Counter” and “Light-Up Band.” The plastic wrist-worn pedometers measure steps and blink quickly or slowly depending on the pace of the person wearing it. The product was manufactured in China.
The CPSC advises consumers to return the plastic band to a McDonald’s location for a free replacement toy and “either a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices.”
