McDonald’s is recalling 29 million “Step It!” fitness trackers that were given away in some Happy Meals after reports that children experienced skin irritations and burns from the toy’s wristband.
The recall comes less than a week after McDonald’s pulled the fitness tracker from its stores in the U.S. and Canada.
The fast-food giant has received more than 70 reports, including seven reports of blisters from wearing the wristbands, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.
Last week, McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey told USA TODAY, the activity trackers, which were available in all U.S. and Canadian stores would no longer be offered in Happy Meals.
