Mcdonald’s Will Not Offer Happy Meal Activity Trackers After All

McDonalds was planning to release some activity trackers in its Happy Meals, but nope, you kids are gonna put on the weight after all. Sorry kids.

The wearable was going to be offered in Happy Meals in the US and Canada over the next month to coincide with the Olympic Games. Apparently they are causing skin irritation, so the chain decided to pull the wearables off the market early and says that it is fully investigating the issue.

It’s not like they were anything special, just pretty basic hunks of cheap plastic that remind kids to move because they just crammed a Big Mac and 2 large fries into their pie-hole.

Skin irritation is a big no no, but I guess diabetes, gout and a need to roam around in a scooter is perfectly okay. Looks like Mickey D’s  can never quite get it right when trying to please the health conscious, while simultaneously doling out the nasty stuff. Better luck next time, Ronald.
