McDonald’s Insufficient Remedy
McDonald’s offered, what we believe is an inadequate remedy. They recommend that parents immediately take the recalled wristbands from children, and they are suggesting that parents return them to any McDonald’s for a free replacement toy and either a yogurt tube or bag of apple slices. This is not sufficient if the child was injured.
