McDon­ald’s stops giv­ing fit­ness tracker

Maryland Independent - - Business -

McDon­ald’s is re­mov­ing col­or­ful, plas­tic pe­dome­ters from chil­dren’s Happy Meals over con­cerns of skin ir­ri­ta­tion. The toys were part of a four-week pro­mo­tion.

“We have taken this swift and vol­un­tary step af­ter re­ceiv­ing lim­ited re­ports of po­ten­tial skin ir­ri­ta­tions that may be as­so­ci­ated from wear­ing the band,” com­pany spokes­woman Terri Hickey said in a state­ment made avail­able to press or­ga­ni­za­tions. “Noth­ing is more im­por­tant to us than the safety of our cus­tomers and we are fully in­ves­ti­gat­ing this is­sue.”

The Step-It ac­tiv­ity track­ers mea­sure steps and blinks quickly or slowly de­pend­ing on the amount of ac­tiv­ity.
