McDonald's gives up on fitness tracker Happy Meals after reports of skin irritation

McDonald’s

McDonald’s temporarily got rid of the toys in kids’ Happy Meals this month and replaced them with fitness trackers. I appreciated the effort, although the experiment's already coming to an unexpected end. The company is pulling the trackers from meals because of reports of skin irritation.

McDonald’s is investigating the issue and reverting back to toys. What a sad day for kids who eat fast food and still want to monitor their steps.
