Update: McDonalds recalls fitness tracker

No sooner had news broken that McDonalds was including a fitness tracker with Happy Meals in the United States and Canada that the company has had to recall the devices.

According to a report at Mashable

“We are voluntarily removing the Step It! Activity Band Happy Meal toys in our restaurants in our United States and Canadian markets,” Terri Hickey, a spokesperson for McDonald’s, told Mashable. “It will no longer be offered as part of our Happy Meals. We have taken this swift and voluntary step after receiving limited reports of potential skin irritations that may be associated from wearing the band.”

At least they tried.
