Remember the McDonald's fitness trackers? They've been recalled over blisters

0

Well, that didn't last long.

Not-so-happy meal

The fitness tracker McDonald's added to its Happy Meals instead of toys has been recalled. The Consumer Product Safety Commission  reports 29 million toys were sold in the U.S., plus about 3.6 million more in Canada.

The reason? The wristband has caused blisters and burns. McDonald's has reported 70 "incidents," including seven of blisters.

Anyone who got the fitness tracker can return it for a free replacement toy and either yogurt or apple slices.

STEP-it

The tracker was  distributed for eight days, from August 9th through the 17th. The fast-food chain was hoping to cash in on the Olympic hype  -- makes sense, as McDonald's was the official Olympic restaurant.

The tracker, called a "STEP-it," flashed a light based on how much the wearer was working out. 

It wasn't exactly well-received.
