McDonald's has issued a recall that involves Step-iT activity wristbands. The affected product comes in two styles, the Activity Counter and a motion-activated Light-up Band.

The recalled wristbands were distributed exclusively by McDonald's restaurants nationwide from August 9, 2016 to August 17, 2016 with Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals.

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 the recalled activity wristbands have a square face with the words STEP-iT printed on them and one button to depress and 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 wearing the wristbands.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled wristbands from children and return them to any McDonald's for a free replacement toy and either a yogurt tube or bag of apple slices.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact McDonald's at (800) 244-6227.
