McDonald’s is recalling 33 million Step-It activity wristbands. The wristbands were given out with Happy Meal. The defective toys were recalled after more than 70 people reported injuries of blisters and skin irritation.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it had received more than 70 reports of incidents after people wore the wristbands. McDonald’s is requesting that customers return the wristbands for a replacement toy as well as a yogurt or a bag of apple slices.

However, that came after the incidents, accidents and injuries happened. We believe it is important to try to help prevent injuries and wrongful deaths. One way is to publish information about recalls of defective and dangerous toys.
