McDonald’s pulls Happy Meal fitness tracker over skin rashes | Kathleen O’Brien – NJ.com

McDonald’s fast food restaurants stopped giving out children’s fitness trackers with its Happy Meals earlier this week out of concern they may cause a rash, according to news reports.

The bracelet-style trackers, which were available in all U.S. and Canadian stores, will be replaced by other prizes in children’s meals, according to a spokeswoman for McDonald’s.

“We have taken this swift and voluntary step after receiving limited reports of potential skin irritations that may be associated with wearing the band,” spokeswoman Terri Hickey said in a statement.
