McDonald’s Pulls Fitness Tracker from Happy Meals
Can I get a rash with that? McDonald’s recently announced the concept of doing away with classic Happy Meal toys and replacing them with the new ‘Step-It Activity Band’ fitness tracker. Sadly, their brain child idea didn’t work and were pulled from boxes on Wednesday due to skin irritations, reports USA Today.
“We have taken this swift and voluntary step after receiving limited reports of potential skin irritations that may be associated with wearing the band,” Terri Hickey, a spokeswoman for McDonald’s, said in a statement.
McDonald’s goal was to encourage children to exercise and ear healthier.
