What started as a cool idea has turned out not to have such hot results!
The wrist bands which were meant to encourage children to be more active by counting their steps had a small red LED. It is reportedly this LED that has caused some children to have mild skin burns!

McDonalds Cool Toy Recalled For Burn Risk

Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), McDonald's Corp. and McDonald's Restaurants of Canada Limited have jointly recalled all "Step-iT" Activity Wristbands. The wristbands come in two styles: an "Activity Counter" and a "Light-up Band." Both have the words "Made for McDonald’s" inscribed on the back of the "watch face".
 While Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents related to the watches, McDonald's reported more than 70 incidents of the watch causing skin irritations and burns. At least eight such incidents occurred in Canada.

McDonalds Offers Freebies for Recalled Happy Meal Toy

 Customers are advised immediately to remove the watches from children. Customers should dispose of the watches or return to any McDonald’s for a free replacement toy and a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices.
