CPSC issues recall of wireless activity-tracking wristbands

Posted: Updated:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission issues a massive recall of an activity tracker.

About a million Fitbit Force activity-tracking wristbands are being recalled.    Users are reporting allergic reactions.  The users say they're having problems with the stainless steel casing, materials in the strap -- or adhesives used to assemble the wristbands.

The wristbands were sold nationwide between October of 2013 and February of 2014.   The company is offering a refund.
