McDonald’s Recalls ‘STEP-iT’ Activity Tracker Due To Blisters
McDonald's across the U.S. are recalling the STEP-iT activity trackers that were in the latest Happy Meals due to skin irritation and burns from wearing the band.
According to the Customer Product Safety Commission, McDonald’s has received more than 70 reports of incidents, including seven reports of blisters, after wearing the wristbands. I think the idea of the wristband was great idea for wanting to kids to be more active, unfortunately the product wasn't executed properly.
Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our customers which is why upon learning about concerns with these bands we acted swiftly to stop distribution of these products...
There were over 29 million units distributed in the U.S from August 9, 2016 to August 17, 2016 with Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals. If you have any of the activity trackers, you are asked to immediately take them away from children and return them to McDonald’s for a different toy. When you exchange the band, your child will also get a choice of apples or yogurt for free.
