McDonald's Recalls Recent Happy Meal Toy After Reports Of Burns

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- About 29 million Happy Meal and Mighty Meal McDonald's toys are being recalled in the U.S. and Canada after reports of burns and blisters.

The toys, "Step-iT" activity wristbands, were distributed by the restaurants earlier in August.

They come in two styles — "Activity Counter" and a motion-activated "Light-up Band."

The Activity Counter comes in translucent plastic orange, blue or green and features a digital screen that tracks a child's steps or other movement. The Light-up Band comes in translucent plastic red, purple, or orange and blinks light with the child's movement.

Both styles of activity wristbands have a square face with the words "STEP-iT" printed on them and a button to activate the wristband. The back of the square face contains the etched words "Made for McDonald's."

McDonald's has received more than 70 reports of incidents, including seven reports of blisters, after children wore the wristbands.

Consumers should immediately return the toys to any McDonald's for a free replacement toy and either a yogurt tube or bag of apple slices, according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
