Shrek Glass Recall! McDonald's Recalls 12 Million Glasses


shrek glasses mcdonalds recall
Don't use these glasses!
McDonald's Corp has recalled 12 million Shrek glasses (“Shrek Forever After 3D” ) because they're tainted with the toxic chemical cadmium, a heavy metal that can be  particularly dangerous to children.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), cadmium was found in the painted designs of the characters Shrek, Fiona, Puss n’ Boots, and Donkey.

McDonald's sold the 16-ounce glasses throughout the United States for about $2.

The CPSC said "long-term exposure [to cadmium] ... can cause adverse health effects." Cadmium is a known carcinogen that can cause bone and kidney problems.

Consumers have been asked to stop using the glasses immediately.

For additional information, contact McDonald's toll-free at (800) 244-6227 or visit the CPSC.

I was just in there and had the passing whim of 'Oh gee maybe I should get one for DS'. Luckily money is so tight that I passed it up... These recalls are scary!

It seems like everytime we buy something there is a recall for it.

Already returned mine, I've been using them but feel fine. Since I was the first to return mine at my McD's they gave my two extra dollars. They had no clue about the recall.
