Happy Meals at McDonald’s are not so happy after the fast food giant had to issue a recall of its Step-It activity tracker wristbands. This was after McDonald’s received over 70 claims of problems with the bands. There were reports of skin irritations, blisters, and burns with children wearing the bands and McDonald’s decided to quickly recall all trackers in the United States and also in Canada. A social media campaign by one mom also got the word out that the tracker burnt her child after only eight minutes of use.
There are two different trackers subject to the recall, one that was an activity counter tracker and one that was a light-up band tracker. McDonald’s will replace the recalled trackers with another toy or a couple of food choices, including their tubes of yogurt or apple slices. McDonald’s has indicated they do not want to see any more injuries from the trackers and urge customers to bring the trackers back right away.
If you or someone you love experienced injury due to one of the McDonald’s Happy Meal fitness trackers, contact your medical provider and please contact Inserra & Kelley Law Offices to see whether you may be entitled to compensation.
